Late Summer Bounty
Written by Gayle
Apples--at least when they are crisp--are one of my favorite snacks. And I like to have them in all sorts of forms--muffins, pies, crisps, salads. These little beauties are a great way to have apples and chips at the same time!
Dried Apple Chips
You'll need only two ingredients--organic apples and cinnamon. Almost any apples will do--whatever variety that you love. And if you'd like them plain, skip the cinnamon! Preheat your oven to 275 degrees.
The hardest step is to core the apples. I have an old-fashioned vegetable peeler that works great, but a straight, narrow paring knife works too. A serrated knife is a little hard to control through the turn in this project.
Then slice the apples thin and place in a single layer on a baking sheet. You can line it with parchment paper or silpat, if desired. Three apples filled my largest baking sheet
Place in a pre-heated oven, and leave for one hour. Then flip them over and dry for a second hour. You'll want to check them periodically to be sure that they are not too dried out.
These are a great snack to toss in school or work lunches!
