Dried Apple Chips

4 Nov

I love this time of the year in Florida. The humidity is gone. Nights are cool. Windows can be open. However, we do not get the seasons like few States up from Florida. Floridians flock up to Tennessee and North Carolina like migrating birds to see the fall colors. I am benefiting from friends visiting the Northern States by receiving fresh apples.

In Finland I loved visiting my great-uncle on his farm. One of the things my sister and I loved doing was sneaking up to the attic to hide and eat the dried apples our great-uncle had his wife had preserved for the winter. These apple chips take me back to my  uncle’s attic and for all the good times at the farm.

  • apples, sliced crosswise thin, seeds removed
  • cinnamon if desired

Heat oven to 225 degrees. Place the apple slices on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 1 1/2 hrs each side. If you want to season the apples with cinnamon, season after flipping them over. Bake until crisp, and cool. Apples can be stored in airtight container up to a week. Use the apples as healthy snacks, add to salads or even to breakfast oatmeal or yogurt.
