To 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.
Total Time: 8 hours
Yield: 1 quart
- 8 medium size sweet apples
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice (to keep the apples from turning dark)
- 6 cups water (approximately)
- Mix lemon juice and water in a large mixing bowl.
- Peel apples, one at the time.
- Place on cutting board and cut in half, lengthwise.
- Notch out stem and blossom end.
- Lay half down on cutting board and slice approximately 1/4 inch thick slices.
- Notch out remaining core.
- Place slices in lemon water and repeat process with next apple.
- When all apples are in the water, pour them into a strainer to drain.
- Place slices on dehydrator racks. Do not over lap.
- Dry for 6-8 hours. Rotate racks during drying process so they will dry evenly.
- When all are dry, let them cool before putting them into a Ziploc bag.
