Dry Apples – That’s How It Works

Drying apples in 4 steps

Whether in muesli in the morning or as a snack in between, dried apple chips are always delicious. Reason enough to try drying the apples yourself. With the following instructions, you too can easily make dried apple chips.

  1. Wash 2 apples and then cut them in half. Remove the middle part with the seeds. Then lay the apples on their flat side and cut them into 2-4mm thick slices.
  2. Since apples turn brown quickly, you should treat the apples with some citric acid. To do this, pour 1 liter of water, 2-3 tablespoons of sugar, and 3-4 tablespoons of lemon juice into a saucepan. Let the liquid boil up briefly and then cool down a bit. Now dip the apple chips briefly into the liquid.
  3. You can then take the apple chips out again and let them drain. Then place them on two baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Make sure that the apple chips are not stacked, but lie next to each other.
  4. Preheat the oven to 80°C using top and bottom heat. Then slide in the baking sheets. Tip: The oven door should remain slightly open, otherwise the moisture will remain in the oven and the apples will not dry out. Leave the apple chips in the oven for about 2-3 hours, turning them on the other side in between. At the end of the time, you can often check whether the chips are already ready.
