Autumn & Apple Chips

(Apple Picking, Homestead Farms.  Hiking the Billy Goat Trail at Great Falls)

Cool weather means apple picking and hiking.

The problem with apple picking is that you end up with a ton of apples.  And, if you're me, those apples turn into apple chips.

I am currently on batch Number Three of apple chips.  They're ridiculously easy - slice apples very thin, lay them on a parchment lined baking sheet, stick them in the oven at 175 degrees.  Leave them there for 3-4 hours.  100% apples.  They don't need sugar, promise.

They're delicious, so I eat them fast and then I want to explode.  Because I basically just ingested 2 apples in under 3 minutes.  Which should lead me to think, "Hey, let's not eat 2 apples in under 3 minutes, Kelly.  No bueno."  But instead it led me to impulse purchase a mandolin slicer on the internet at 11:00 pm, so I can make perfectly thin sliced apple chips.  Which will invariably be delicious.  And the cycle will repeat itself.

  13. I was thinking of dehydrating apples, I wonder if doing them in the oven would be better? I just bought a bunch of apples, I think I'll try this tomorrow, thanks!
