  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 pound nectarines or peaches


Preheat the oven to 200°F. Combine 4 cups water and lemon juice in a medium bowl.

Pit fruit and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices (preferably with a mandoline for consistency). Place slices in lemon water and let soak 10 minutes.

Meanwhile arrange a cooling rack in each of 2 large, rimmed baking sheets and spray the racks lightly with nonstick cooking spray, or line the racks with cheesecloth (to prevent sticking).

Remove fruit slices from lemon water and arrange in a single layer on the prepared racks. Bake about 3 hours or until slices are almost completely dried. Let the fruit slices cool completely, uncovered overnight to finish drying. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
