I was quite impressed with my how productive I was yesterday, particularly given my mild hangover! It started with a trip to the local farmer’s market, where delicious looking apples inspired me to attempt dried apples for the first time.
I have long thought about buying a dehydrator for tasks such as this. However, I have been deterred by the price of a good one, the risk of a cheap one and the worry that it will just sit in the cupboard and never get used.
I haven’t bought a dehydrator (yet), I used the oven to dry the apples.
The first step is to thinly slice the apples and remove the core. You could cut slices cutting around the core, but I wanted rings. I don’t have an apple corer (may buy one soon) so the size of holes in the middle of my slices varied depending on how thick the core was on that particular slice.
Once the slices have dried out they are ready to eat. The cinnamon apple slices were AMAZING!
