Drying Apples?

Whether you are drying apples in an oven or in a dehydrator, is it necessary to put lemon juice on the fruit to prevent the apples from browning from oxidation?

Yes, either lemon juice or sodium bisulfite. I use 1 tsp of sodium bisulfite to 1 quart water. I soak the apples in the solution for about 2 minutes. I run the soak process with two batches going. While one is soaking i am laying out another. I switch the oldest back to the front each time i empty a batch. I lay out my apples on a sheet from my excalibur dehydrator. Then i sprinkle a sparse breeze of cinnamon sugar over the apple sheet and stick in the dehydrator. Takes about 10-12 hours. If you save them in a food saver, when they are dried, they will last quite awhile. My kids love them so much i have not had the opportunity to test how long 'awhile' is. I also do the very, very popular pineapple rings!
