Drying apples is a good way to enjoy apples all year long. Dried apples is an easy apple recipe that is tasty, portable and a healthy snack. You want to keep in mind that the more flavorful the fresh apples are, that the more delicious the dehydrated apple version will be. To start this easy apple recipe you want to peel and core the apples. YOu can use a vegetable peeler to help remove the apple peels. Then cut out the apple cores. Don't discard those peels and apple cores. As you can use them to make apple scrap vinegar, some apple scrap jelly, and homemade apple pectin. The next step in this easy apple recipe is to slice the apples. Cut the apples into slices that are about a 1/4-inch thick. As you slice the apples, you want to drop the apple pieces into some acidulated water to prevent them from browning. You can make some acidulated water by adding 1 1/2 tablespoons of white vinegar or lemon juice to a quart of water. Leave the apple slices soaking in the acidulated water while you finish slicing the rest of your apples. Then drain the apples, once all of the apples are sliced, and they have had a soak in the acidulated water, you can drain them in a colander. Let the apple slices sit in the colander for about 2 to 3 minutes to drain off as much water as possible.
Then arrange the apple slices for drying onto a baking sheet with racks. Place racks on the baking sheets and arrange the apples onto the racks so that none of the apple slices is touching. Then dry the apples. Turn the oven to its lowest setting, which is usually about 140F to 150F. Then prop the oven door open with the handle of a wooden spoon. Put the apple covered baking sheets into the oven. And let the apple slices dry until they are leathery to crisp in texture, which can take anywhere from about six to ten hours. If your oven is hotter in some spots than in others, you want to turn the baking sheets around occasionally so that the apples dry evenly. Then cool the dried fruit. You won't be completely sure whether or not the apple slices are fully dehydrated until they have cooled, and you've sampled one.
