Cinnamon and Slightly Sweet Apple Slices...
I made these last fall, when we had way too many apples and not enough time to eat them all, but you can easily make them now. I love having these in the pantry and freezer, they are a pretty healthy go-to snack that really cost almost nothing to make. My farmhands gobble them up after school or on hikes or while snowshoeing. They fill you up too.
These are sprinkled with very little cinnamon-sugar and then dehydrated. They are really easy to make; they need a little prep and then a whole lotta ignore time on the dehydrator. If you don't have a dehydrator, you can do this in the oven on cookie sheets covered with parchment. Just pop them in the oven at 200ºF and turn them every so often until they are as crispy as you like. I like mine really crispy, but my kiddos like them a little soft, so I do a little of each.
Apples, whatever type you like
Large bowl full of water
Lemon juice from 1 lemon
Slice and core the apples. You can use a mandolin and a corer or an apple-corer-peeler contraption. I chose to leave the skins on, but you can peel them if you like. As you core and peel, place the apples in the bowl with water with the lemon juice.
Once dry, place in a large ziplock bag and freeze. Remove when ready to snack. Enjoy on a bright winter day...
