dehydrating apples - to peel or not to peel
I'd like to dehydrate and sprinkle with a little sugar and cinnamon. Do I have to peel them? My RA hands just can't take that!

No, you don't have to peel them. (I don't) Just know the edges will be a little tougher (like an apple peel).

Do you put the sugar and cinnamon on before or after dehydrating? I would like to try but am new.Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.

SAVE YOUR HANDS..... You don't need to peel them (just cut out any "bad" spots); and you really don't even need to core them.
If you cut your apples on a cutting mandoline (hold the stem at the top and slice from the bottom of the apple to the top), you will have beautiful slices with a 'star' in the middle (from the seeds).
Most of the seeds will fall out when you give the apple slices a dip in an acidic water bath (to help prevent oxidizing/browning, and to prevent bacteria growth during dehydrating and storage). The seeds in the slices that don't fall out from the "bath" will generally fall out during the drying process. You can also poke seeds out with a toothpick, if you'd like. But I do most of my apples anymore without peeling OR coring.
If I want smaller slices I'll use an apple corer/slicer (the kind you plundge through the apple to cut apple wedges). Then I will slice the wedges with a paring knife to the thickness I need.

If you peel them save the peels for jelly
