The preparations are the same: The apples must be fresh and crisp to get a good result. You can use windfall apples - just check that there are no marks and scratches - or cut it off. Wash and dry the apples and cut them into slices, using a mandolin slicer or a sharp knife. Use an apple corer before mandolin slicer/sharp knife - or cut the apple into thin wedges.
When you make dried apples in the oven, it is important to make the apples thin, so they dry quickly - it works well with a mandolin slicer.
When you make dried apples in the dehydrator, it is not so important how thin the slices are - they actually get better if the apples aren't sliced too thin.
Spread the apple rings/slices in a single layer on a baking sheet with baking paper and let them dry in the oven at low heat 50-60 C overnight.
If you are being impatient then give the apples 100 C for about 2-3 hours, perhaps more, depending on how juicy the apples are and the thickness of your slices. Turn the apples halfway through.
In a dehydrator, - put the apples in a single layer be sure that they do not touch each other. In my dehydrator, it takes 1-3 days to dry the apples.
Your apple chips are ready when they feel dry and crisp.
The dried apple slices taste super good with or without added flavour and they are a healthy snack. </ Li>
Cut them into cubes, use them in muesli, in buns, breadsticks and muesli cookies. </ Li>
Keep the dried apples in an airtight container, I put in a slice of (oven) dried bread to retain crispness. </ li>
