I made some lovely spicy apple chips last week! Here’s how – try it. It’s easy and delicious!
First, take two or three apples, and core and slice them. Peeling is optional – but I’d recommend it if you’re using wax-covered apples. Firm, slightly tart apples work best for this job. I’m using Royal Gala because that’s what we had at home.
Next, lay the apple slices on a baking sheet, as tight as you can. Sprinkle the spice of your choice over the slices. Cinnamon and cardamom go well with apples but you can always experiment. I used Garam Masala, an Indian spice mix, and it was great! Don’t add sugar, the drying process will bring out the sweetness even from the most tart of apples.
Next, turn your oven on to the lowest possible setting. Put the pan in the oven and leave it overnight. Since the whole point of the process is to get rid of all the moisture, leave a spatula or something in between the over door to keep it open and let the moisture escape.
And that’s how easy it is! Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the finished apple chips… They vanished quickly. I’ll add a photo when I make them again.
If you try some unique flavouring on your apple chips, please share it on the comments below. We’d all love to hear it! 🙂
