Apioi eis Kykliskous
(Dried pear pudding)

by Galen, Die alimentorum facultatibus

Accompanied by cream, this recipe makes a pleasant fruit salad.

Original recipe:

Translation: They slice the pears into thin discs which they dry and store away. When food is short during the winter and spring, they cook these discs as a substitute for foods that contain little nourishment.


  • 250g/½ ib dried pears


  • Gently braise the dried pears in a little water until they are plump.
  • Cool and serve with the resulting juice.
