Dried Apple Chips

 

Image

I received another gorgeous bushel of apples from Pachamama Farm in Ossining, NY.

I made apple sauce, apple butter, and apple chips and I STILL had apples left over!! If you have a dehydrator, you have probably done this before. I don’t have one but was able to get that chewy texture from a few hours in a low oven. This is a great recipe to make with your kids. They can arrange the apple slices and handle the seasoning.

ImageDepending on the size of your oven, you can probably only make about 5 apples worth of chips. I can only fit 3 baking sheets in my oven.

I sliced 5 whole apples using my mandoline (you could do this with a knife but I wouldn’t recommend it…it will take a while!)

Note: The seeds fell right out as I was laying them out on the baking sheet so don’t worry about trying to remove them

About a tbsp of cinnamon covered the whole batch

Sprinkle of Salt

Sprinkle of Sugar (optional)

Note: you could leave them totally naked and they are still delicious!

Place apple slices in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Let your toddler do the seasoning ;).  Bake in the oven at 275 for about 2 hours…check in and flip at 1 hour.

 

Let them cool on a wire rack.

Enjoy this gorgeous fall weather, SW and Sweet P
