We recently dehydrated our Heirloom Jonathan apples and I must say they are so delicious and crunchy and such a portable food! I actually cannot keep them stocked in the house this time of year the entire family loves them plus they make amazing Christmas gifts and I also use the smaller dried apple chips in my “Homemade Holiday Granola“.
All you need to dehydrate apples is: apples lemon juice and cinnamon (optional) We of course have an apple peeler as well this makes the job go much faster! It is worth it to invest in a nice apple peeler don’t go cheap if this is a project you invest time in every year! I simply peel the apples and core them with our peeler, then they sit in the lemon juice and I roll them around in the lemon juice then we cut ours into half slices and lay in the dehydrator and sprinkle the cinnamon on top! My husband ” The Viking In My Life” often do this project together. My son and I are so addicted we pack dried apples almost every day for school and work and I must say they are absolutely delicious! A bonus is that apples store very well in long term storage or our garage refrigerator. I wish all of you a wonderful holiday season and I hope you are enjoying the 12 days of Christmas I believe tomorrow is the 4th day of Christmas everyone so instead of posting related articles, pins, and Hometalk posts I am going to share the 12 Homestead Bloggers of Christmas from “From Scratch” magazine!
