Perfect fall snack

torkadeappelringar

Locally grown apples - preferrably from your own garden, if you have that option - dried to crisp yet chewy snacks. I borrowed a friend's dehydrator and that worked out really well, but you can oven-dry these as well. Or even air-dry, but they won't be as crispy.

You can dip the slices, pre-drying - in lemon juice to prevent browning, and you can add spices like cinnamon or cardamom. I did nothing at all to this batch though - the apples are delicious all on their own.

Have you ever oven dried them? If so, how did you do it and what temperature did you use? I'm curious and would like to try it.

I love dried apple rings and have a big bag of them in the cupboard that I keep snacking on. How do you oven dry them?

Very nice and well done. I agree that this is a perfect fall snack and even cheaper than the usual. Apple is also rich in vitamins so it's a perfect snack even for kids. I think I like it with cinnamon.

Oh, I've never tried oven drying myself - but I'd set the oven to as low as possible, definitely not over 100°C, and just let it go until completely dry. I bet it'd take at least 3-4 hours.

Åh, vilken bra idé! Ska genast göra äppelringar av de sista äpplena i fruktskålen!
