Fruit & Veggie Crisps
I was asked recently if I had any suggestions for passover alternatives to crackers. Yes - Fruit Crisps! They are absolutely wonderful to have with cheese as fruit and cheese have always been a perfect pair. They look stunning and impressive to guests AND they are easy to make.
You can use fruit and vegetable crisps to garnish just about anything - soups, cakes, salads, as a base for an hors d'oeuvre, etc.
How to make them - Use a mandolin to thinly slice fruit (apples and pears work best) or vegetables (beets and sweet potatoes look amazing). Spread them out on a very lightly greased baking tray. Then bake them at a low temperature (200F) for about 2 hours, flipping every 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack rack.
Let me know how it goes !
