How to Make Dried Apples Crispy/Chewy vs. Crispy
You can easily learn how to make dried apples in the oven! Slice your apples very thin, sprinkle cinnamon and dry in the oven. That's all!
- 2 Gala Apples*
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon**
Preheat the oven to 225°F(107C°). Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Wash the apples. Core the apples with an apple corer. Using a sharp knife, slice them very thin as circles, preferably no more than ⅕ inch thick(5mm). Once you cut more than half of each apple, it will be hard to hold and cut them as whole circles, so you’ll need to cut them as half circles.Instead of using a knife, you can use a mandoline slicer with a hand guard as long as you find it safe to use.
Place the apple circles onto the parchment paper and sprinkle ground cinnamon on top. Bake one side of the apples for 35-45 minutes (depending on the thickness of the slices) or until the apples start to dry and the edges start to curl up. Then flip them over and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes. If you like your dried apples as chewy and a little bit crispy, take them from the oven. If you like them all crispy, bake for an additional 1 hour and let them cool in the turned off oven for an extra hour.
*You can use other apples too. Granny Smith will be good for a tart flavor.
**You can decrease the amount according to your taste. It is enough cinnamon so I won't suggest increasing.
