This is my third dried fruit (banana & strawberry)and I think my (and Harry’s) favourite. The cooking time really depends on how you like it, I dried half for 2 hours and the other half a little over 2.5 hours. You can eat them softer like you would find in most dried fruit bags, or really crisp them up – both lovely. 

Make a little dried fruit bag, great for school or daycare lunches. 

Tip: try sprinkling some cinnamon on a couple of slices for something different.

Tip: Apple chips are best eaten fresh when they are crisp and delicious. Store in an airtight container.

Ingredients

  • 2 apples, cored and peeled
  • Lemon juice (to coat)

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to between 80°C - 100°C -

Step 2

Slice the apple into 2-3mm thick pieces (as thin as you can - I used a mandolin) and
place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.  -

Step 3

Brush each slice with lemon and place in the oven for around 2hours (turn them half way to speed up the process). -

Step 4

Once you have desired texture, remove the apples from the oven (they will continue to crisp on cooling). -

    Does it make a taste or texture difference whether you use green or red apples, old or new apples? I just chucked out 3 old apples today, but it was before I saw this post. Maybe I could have used them to make this delicious snack??

    Made these over the weekend and they were delish! I need to get a slicer thought, that would make it much quicker and I’m going to cook them longer the next time. They tend to soften after you put them in a container. My one year old daughter like them too!

      Hi Jennifer. Thanks for the comment. I agree they do soften a little, but I quite like them soft too :) The dried banana and strawberries are great too, Ax

    How are they stored and how long will they keep?
