Dried Apples

I love dried apples.  Especially when they are homemade.  Here's how I make them:

First, slice your apples. You want the slices to be as uniform as possible so they will dry evenly. I use my apple peeler/corer thingy.

Place the apples in a bowl and sprinkle with a cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Spread them out on your dehydrator racks. 

Put on the lid, turn it on and wait 4-6 hours. 

By the way, I got this for my birthday. You should have seen my old one. The trays were all cracking and breaking. It needed to be replaced 3 years ago, but we made it work.  I love this one. I bought extra trays so I could do double the amount at the same time. 

Here's what they look like when they're all dried.

I bag them up in freezer bags and stick them in the freezer. (I do this since I like them a little chewy not crispy.)

Now we're ready for a healthy snack any time.
