It’s tough to avoid the sweets around the holidays. Sweets are good but from the wrong place they can wreck your day. Here is a great way to get the fix from a safe source. Apples, specifically dried apples.
For this you will need some apples (I like Granny Smith sour ones), a sharp knife and peeler, some lemon juice, and a dehydrator.
A sharp knife is required, be safe.
Peel the apples, this is optional, I read the skin gets tough so you may not like that.
Once peeled, you need to core and slice. I’m not a pro so the core objective was failed, however I can slice.
Once the apples are sliced to your liking you will need to mix up some lemon juice and water to provide the sliced apples a soak. This is optional and will help keep the fruit from turning brown. The accounts I read suggested a 3-5 minute soak.
After the soak place them in your dehydrator.
After 4-5 hours they’ll look like this and feel leathery. I had some thicker than others and those were softer, the thinner ones were crispier.
They taste better than Jolly Ranchers.
