Dried Apple Slices
Dried apples are great for healthy snacks and lunchboxes. You can also toss them into a spinach salad with nuts and grapes, serve with roasted pork or alongside a sandwich as you would chips.


Ingredients: 

2 apples (Fuji, Gala or Honeycrisp)
 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)



Method: 

Preheat oven to 225°F. Slice apples as thinly as possible, about 1/8-inch or thinner (use a mandolin if you have one). Arrange slices in a single layer on 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with cinnamon if using. Bake 1 1/2 hours; flip slices and continue baking 1 1/2 hours longer or until completely dry and crisp (they will not crisp more upon cooling). Timing will vary depending on the moisture content of the apples and the thickness of the slices. Let cool. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.
