Autumn is upon us, and I can’t get enough! Last week I took a trip to the apple orchards and came home with 60 pounds of fruit. This is one fun way to enjoy them.
A mandolin slicer works great for achieving paper-thin, uniform slices. However, if you don’t have one (I don’t) a sharp knife and some patience works just fine.
- 2 firm, medium-size apples
- 2 t. granulated sugar
- 1/2 t. cinnamon
- pinch of nutmeg
Preheat oven to 225F. Slice apples into very thin rings. I leave the core in because I think it makes a prettier apple chip, but you can remove it if you like.
Place apple rings on a lined baking sheet in a single layer.
In a small bowl, mix together sugar and spices. Sprinkle over apple rings.
Place baking sheet in the oven. Baking time will depend on the thickness and water content of your apple slices. They should be done in 1 1/2-2 hours. Remove when crisp.
