Apple Chips

This is almost too easy to warrant a written recipe, but just in case you’re tired of paying too much money for too little product when it comes to fruit chips, or if you just want to get away from the additives normally found in the store bought version, here it is: the easiest recipe ever. I make it even easier by not coring the apple, mostly because it’s easier to eat around the core piece of the finished chip than it is to core the whole apple (unless you have an apple corer, in which case, have at it). These are great road trip snacks for kiddos and adults, and you can easily jazz things up with ground cinnamon, ground ginger, or even dried herbs, if that’s your fancy.

To avoid any melting incidents, make sure you use a metal rack in your cookie sheet and not a plastic coated one.

Apple Chips

A few apples of whatever variety you’d like

Equipment: a sharp knife or mandolin slicer (recommended), baking sheet, metal cooling rack

1.Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Set the cooling racks in the baking sheets and set aside.

2. Slice the apples into thin slices (I went 1/4″). Arrange the slices in an even layer on the cooling racks/baking sheets and place in the oven. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until dried. Because moisture content in apples varies, you’ll want to start checking on the apples after about an hour and may need to bake them longer than I did. When they are done, remove from the oven and let them cool, then eat.
