This recipe is sweet, crunchy, easy to make and loaded with spices that are health promoting. Every time I make of these it makes me remember when we lived in Greenville, SC and the mountains of Western NC were just an hour away. Funny how a food can trigger memories from a special time in life. Every fall Tanner and I would spend a day picking apples in Hendersonville. I've never seen so many varieties of apples! Afterwards we'd have to come up with at least 5 different ways to how to use up all those apples. This recipe was one of them. Now our 14 month old son loves them too!
Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Paleo, Primal
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
dash sea salt
dash cayenne pepper
1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. Wash apples and thinly slice into 1/8 inch thick slices.
3. Combine apples and seasoning in a large bowl. Mix with hands gently until apples are evenly coated.
4. Spread slices evenly on parchment paper. They may touch but not overlap.
5. Bake (dehydrate) for 8-9 hours or until crispy and the ends curl up. Let cool completely in the oven. (We often leave ours in the oven overnight.)
6. Store apple chips in an airtight container.
Yields enough apple chips to fill one large mason jar.
