Apple Season is in full swing in Michigan and I have been finding ways to preserve the harvest. A great way I found is to dehydrate them. I have to warn you though these will not last long in your pantry!
How to dehydrate Apples
1. Wash, peel, core and slice your Apples thin. Look at the bottom of this post for a easy way to do this.
2. Immediately place slices in a bowl full of water and about 4 tsp of lemon juice.
3. Drain and place on dehydrator racks making sure that the slices are not touching each other.
4. Dehydrate about six to eight hours or until done. This will depend on the weather and your dehydrator (be sure and read your instructions). Mine took about 6 hours the first time and 8 hours the next. They will crisp when cool.
An Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer is so valuable during the Fall Season. It is worth it's weight in Gold. I have tried to dehydrate Apple Slices before without much success but with this gadget they were perfect. I was lucky enough to find mine with the wood mount at a garage sale but they do have them on Amazon.
