  • 2 cup(s) apple juice, unsweetened (if possible, juice your own from about 5-6 large apples)
  • 1 whole cinnamon stick
  • 2 large apple(s)
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon to taste


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