  • 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)
