Whenever a recipe calls for fruit to accompany meat, game, or poultry (as in duck with pears), this is the best way I know to bring out the flavors of the fruit, giving a commercial product a whole new lease on life, as if it were ripe fruit fresh from a farm in Oregon or Long Island. The process is oven drying, slowly evaporating all that Colorado River irrigation water from the fruit without cooking it.
