Title: Sweet and Spicy Carambola Chips
Post by: dongeorgio on January 10, 2014, 07:41:15 PM

3 starfruit (carambola)
1 cup liquid honey
1 cup water
sea salt and cayenne pepper to taste


1. Preheat oven to 200F.

2. Slice Starfruit into 1/8" pieces (you should have about 36 star-shaped pieces).

3. Bring honey and water to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring until honey is incorporated. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. 

4. Place starfruit in a bowl and pour syrup over starfruit and toss gently to coat. Strain through a fine mesh strainer; cover and refrigerate syrup for future use. Arrange chips on a parchment-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt and cayenne pepper to taste. Place tray in oven and dry for 2-3 hours, turning once, until crisp. Begin checking for doneness after 2 hours, removing smaller dried chips once they are crisp. Transfer dried chips to a baking rack to cool.

5. Store in a sealable container in a cool dark place for up to 5 days. (
