This recipe was born out my frugal urge to redeem a big basket of very wrinkly, aging Gala Apples. I've listed the seasonings I used to add flair to this age-old method of preservation, but by all means, tells me what combos you enjoyed! The Hot Pepper Sauce (I used Tabasco) certainly added a 'kick' much appreciated in our home, but you may prefer the classical sugar-spice-and-all-things-nice variety without a touch of added heat. While this recipe was executed with a borrowed dehydrator, I would love to know people's success with the oven -- apples spread in a single layer onto a lined baking sheet and place in preheated, 300 degree F oven for 25-30 min. or at 200 degrees F for 1 to 1-1/2 hours (cooling on a wire rack as you go)....
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Combine all but the apples in a medium stainless steel pot and stir until sugar is dissolved.
- 2Slice the apples as thin as you dare and soak them in spiced syrup for at least 1 hour.
- 3Remove apples from syrup with a slotted spoon (allow a few seconds for excess moisture to drip off) and arrange slices in a dehydrator (follow manufacturer's instructions).
- 4Dehydrate until preferred crispness, between 6-12 hours.
- 5Store in airtight containers.
- 6Prep time& yield is based on work with 5 apples-- chip quantity also depends on thickness of slices.
