Makes 4 servings.
Approximate cooking time: 60 minutes
- 2 cups unsweetened apple juice (if possible, juice your own from about 5-6 large apples)
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 large apples
- ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 250° F.
- In a large pot over high heat, combine apple juice and cinnamon stick. Bring to a low boil.
- Remove top and bottom of apple and slice crosswise to make 1/8 thick “chips.” Discard any seeds.
- Carefully drop apple slices into boiling juice and cook 4-5 minutes. Apple slices will appear translucent.
- Use a slotted spoon to remove apple slices from juice and place on a clean cloth towel. Pat dry.
- Place dried apple chips on a wire cooling rack placed on a cookie sheet (this will catch any drips).
- Bake 30-40 minutes until apple slices turn golden brown and are almost dry to the touch.
