Dried apples are one of the most popular fruits to dry in a food dehydrator. They are also one of the quickest fruits to dry as they can dehydrate in up to six hours. Further, dried apples
have been proven to be part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. Use this easy food dehydrator recipe below to create great tasting dried apple chips :
- If desired, peel the apples but definitely remove their cores. Cut the apples crosswise into chips about 1/4 inch thick or cut the apples lengthwise for 1/4 inch thick slices.
- If desired, and to prevent post-drying browning, briefly dip the apples in lemon or lime juice. Drain or dry the apples well.
Dehydrating or Drying:
- Place the apple slices on the dehydrator’s drying trays
- Dry at 130 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 6 hours or until the slices are dry and leathery and show no signs of moisture within the slice.
Tips - Use apples that have great flavor like Granny Smith, Braeburn, Pink Lady or McIntosh. Apple skin can get tougher when dried, however, if left on the apples, it does provide additional fiber.
Try dehydrating these other dried fruits in your dehydrator.
