    Default Apple snacks

    No idea how it is going to turn out, but I found a recipe in the Ball Blue Book for apple snacks. Basically, apple rings with a sugar/brown sugar/cinnamon coating, then dehydrated. I won't have a chance to taste them until tomorrow night, but my dehydrator is going and the house smells WONDERFUL!

    You're making me hungry! Care to share your recipe? We have a dehydrator.

    SO easy!! Core, peel, and slice the apples. I used plain old Red Delicious. Slice them however you like. I did rings. Pre-treat if desired. (I don't.) In a Ziplock bag, put 2 c. sugar, 1 c. brown sugar, and 2 tsp cinnamon. Mix it up. Dump in apples (as dry as you can get them) and make sure they get coated. (I dumped a bunch in. I would recommend only dumping a few at a time, for more even coating.) Remove and place on dehydrator screen. Dry for approx 24 hours at 130-135F. You will have to turn them once during drying.

    If you live within 1/2 mile of anyone, expect them at your door in a few hours, asking what that heavenly smell is.

    Thank you! This sounds like one of those snacks that DH will plow through and gobble right up.

    BTW, IIRC, you don't live too far from me. About 2-3 hours drive. I'm in Mendocino County.

    My Mom does this but uses just cinnamon or cinnamon with some splenda. The moisture from the apples tends to make the sugar gooey for a while but if you let them continue to dry you will get a crisp chip. We eat them both ways and love every bite of them.

    I didn't notice the gooey until I checked them this morning. They had dripped onto the bananas I had drying under them, so now I have apple AND banana snacks!

    I've heard of people doing this with the peels, as well. In fact, somebody was telling me that she does this in her oven when she's making apple sauce. It's a good use for the peels!

    The banana chips with dripped "apple juice" on them were VERY tasty.

    I heard a joke once about Cinnabon, basically that their food was so sweet you would get a cavity just walking past one in the mall. I tasted the apple snacks and thought of that joke immediately. WOW, is that a SWEET snack!! Definitely not for dieters or diabetics!!
