I was at the grocery store the other day, hungry. (Yes, I know that was a bad idea.) Walking through the bulk section looking at snacks, I saw some dehydrated cinnamon apple slices. They looked so good! So what did I do? I walked right back over to the apple section and grabbed some apples to make them myself. I’m glad I did because I think they turned out better than how the store-bought ones would have tasted.
Mountain Man and I are not big lunch eaters. We mostly like to just eat snacks throughout the day until dinner. I always make him snack bags full of nuts and other things to take to work. I thought this would be a good addition plus he might actually end up eating some fruit.
I love dehydrating fruit and making jerky! What is your favorite item to dehydrate?
- Fuji apples
- Cinnamon sugar
- Slice apples (4 slices per ¼ of an apple).
- Line apples up on a rack.
- Sprinkle the top sides with cinnamon using a spoon.
- Dehydrate for 10 hours at 135 degrees F or until done. (they may need longer if the apples are super juicy)
- When they are done, put them in a bowl and toss it in the freezer for a week. After you can vacuum seal them in a jar and this will make them last for a long time.
We used fuji apples which were super sweet so we didn’t need to coat both sides. Try a piece and you can decide if you need more sugar. If you do, or you are making a big batch dump the `apples into a bag with the sugar and shake, it will be much faster.
