Apple Chips

Leave a comment

Here is a recipe that I came across a couple of days ago that sounded super easy and is something I have bought in the past to snack on; Apple Chips!

In the store you can buy them by the bag, and while they are tasty, why eat preservatives when you can make them yourself for virtually no cost.  They turned out delicious and they are a great addition to take on hikes or walks as they wont go bad (or get bruised).

Ingredients: 1-2 large apples (of any variety), 1 lemon

Directions:

Preheat over to 200 degrees.

Cut the apple(s) into 1/4 inch slices (as best as you can) and put into a pan lined with parchment paper.  Once all the slices are cut, drizzle lemon juice on them (I assume this is to keep them from oxidizing as they dry), I would squeeze the lemon on them and then use the fibers of the lemon as a paint brush to paint it on the slices.

Bake in oven for two hours, turning the slices over in the middle.

Notes: depending on how thick you slice the apples will determine how long they should bake.  If you want soft (more like dehydrated apple slices) then bake on a lower temperature for less time, for a more “chip” like texture then bake them for the time recommended.  Just keep an eye on them near the end of the second hour as they may begin to burn.  USE THE PARCHMENT PAPAER, thinner slices will stick to the pan.
