How to Make Homemade Dried Apple Cinnamon Chips (or Rings)
Come learn how easy it is to dry apples at home, to create crispy apple chips - or soft chewy apple rings! These naturally-sweetened dried apples are a perfect healthy snack, and a great way to preserve your homegrown apple harvests.
- Nutmeg (Optional)
Wash and slice the apples into 1/8th inch thick rings or slices.
Fill the dehydrator trays full of sliced apple, make sure that the slices aren’t overlapping though it is okay if the apples edges are touching.
Next lightly season the apple slices with cinnamon and nutmeg (optional) if you choose to do so.
Dry in the dehydrator around 130 to 135 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 to 12 hours or until they are dried to your preference of texture. (If using an oven, bake the apples on 200 degrees Fahrenheit for about 6 hours)
Once dried, allow the apple rings or chips to cool before placing them in an airtight container for storage. Enjoy!
