I bought a big bag of organic Gala apples earlier in the week. They have been super crisp and sweet, but we were having a difficult time getting through all of them. They were starting to bruise, and I wanted to make sure we ate them before they went bad. I went to my new favorite search engine and found lots of recipes for apple chips. The recipes all seemed super easy and the ingredients very common. So I decided to go for it!
I don’t have a mandoline slicer, so I had to cut them by hand 😦 I was a bit worried but with a sharp knife it worked out well! I think if I ever take a cooking class, a knife skills one would be my first choice. I am in definite need of some tips. But…it worked out ok this time.
I sliced them and placed them in a bowl of water to keep them from turning brown.
I then placed them in a single layer on some parchment paper lining a baking sheet. I sprinkled them lightly with cinnamon and sugar…And that’s it! No oil…no butter.
They cooked at 225 degrees for approximately an hour and a half.
The end product proved great! They still had a nice bite to them and had retained a lot of flavor. The cinnamon and sugar were of course a nice addition too!
We snacked on them all day long…A perfect treat!
