We finally made those oven dried apple rings that we mentioned several weeks ago. They’re fabulous!  The adults love them as much as the kids do.  They make a perfect snack for back to school.

These apple rings still have a little moisture to them.  If you are going to store them for a long time, you might want to dry them out even more by keeping them in the oven a little longer.  Storing them has not been an issue in our house since they’re all gone within a couple of days.

In an effort to be somewhat energy efficient, I throw in a fresh batch whenever the oven is already on after baking something else.

We’ve also discovered that sprinkling a little cinnamon on top before they go in the oven, is a great addition.


Here’s a photo gallery of how we made them.
Wash, peel, core and slice apples.


Soak in lemon water for 5 minutes.


Drain and pat dry.
Place on rack on top of cookie sheet.
Put in oven for 3-4 hours.


Take out when dry – chewy but not crispy.
