Dehydrating ApplesTo start my day, I love to sit down at the computer with a cup of coffee and look at all my favorite websites. When I have them, a handful of dried apples to munch on makes it even better. Dried apples are a good healthy snack anytime.

These would have to make delicious fried apple pies (or baked pies for that matter).


I thought about you several times yesterday and today. A car hit me when I was a child. Broken leg, practically crushed ankle, fractured spine etc.


I bought a little grabber from Dollar Tree. It's probably one of the best ways I've ever spent a dollar. Not having to bend over to pick up something sure helps at keeping back pain away. Several time while picking up something, I thought of you. Thanks again for that great tip.

Thank you likekinds. I can feel your pain. You will love your reach extender and I'm willing to bet you will be buying some more.

I also have back problems and had spinal fusion, L5 and S1 a year ago. I couldn't make it without my reachers. Since surgery, I have placed several around the house. Not being able to bend over, I use them for a lot of things. I even use one to take the clothes out of the dryer.


However, believe it or not, walking the road and picking up litter is one of the easiest things I do. It gives me so much satisfaction. For me, it's a stress reliever and makes me happy. With my reach extender and bag on a bag holder, I do very little bending over. Keeping the litter picked up, I don't have to carry much weight to get it back home and in the trash where it belongs.

I make apple chips in my dehydrator too and they're a hit with the grandchildren. I use my adjustable slicing knife for consistent thickness apple slices and the job gets done more quickly too. I bought mine at WalMart about 10 years ago and use it for everything including any firm fruit, potatoes and meat.


I love home cooking but it does take time so if I can find a shortcut here and there, I'm pleased to take it. The knife makes slicing apples so easy.

Okay, you peel our apples. I am going to buy 6 bag of apples tomorrow. They have about 12 apples per. It will cost $.99 cents per bag. I hope the grandkids like them. TAJ
