With my quest for a healthier lifestyle, I’ve been trying old foods in new ways. We recently made homemade apple chips, and really enjoyed them! My oldest two joined me in the kitchen for a lesson on measuring solids and liquids, and had a lot of fun helping measure, pour, and stir.
Once the apples were ready, I loaded them into four trays in my Raw Chip Factory and set it. The final result was scrumptious. The only thing I would change is next time I need to make all nine trays, because these did not last long!
For my homemade apple chips, I modified a recipe from Simply Dehydrated, a dehydrated food cookbook by Jenny Ross. Here’s what I used…
Homemade Apple Chips
- 6 Gala apples thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup agave nectar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger
- Slice apples with a food processor or mandoline, no thicker than 1/3 inch thick. Set aside.
- In large bowl, combine agave nectar, cinnamon, nutmeg, sea salt, and ginger, mixing thoroughly.
- Add apple slices to mixture and mix until apples are well coated.
- Line dehydration tray with your choice of nonstick drying sheet (I used silicone drying sheets)
- Line apples on tray in a single layer.
- Place trays in Sedona Dehydrator and set dehydrator to raw setting at 110 degrees for 4 hours.
- Remove apple slices to mesh trays (not lined with drying sheets) and dehydrate for an additional 4-5 hours.
- Separate into desired serving sizes and store in airtight containers.
Next I’m making homemade banana chips. I can’t wait!
What would you make in a food dehydrator?
