Oven-Baked Apple Chips

These apple chips are a fall staple in my house. Whether we make it out to the orchards to pick our own apples or we buy a box from the local produce stand I make these every year. They come in handy with a teething toddler and every year I think I’ll seal some in my food saver and have them for later but they are gone before I can get them off the cooling rack.

The prep for making baked apple chips is quick but having the right tools is important. Years ago I acquired (or stole) my mother-in-law’s apple corer slicer peeler, and my husband already had a wire rack for making jerky. I do think making these apple chips would be difficult if I didn’t have these tools and they are both under $30 and have multiple uses, so totally worth it in my book!

To Make Apple Chips

Step one:

Wash your apples and line the bottom baking pan of the wire rack with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Preheat the oven to 245 degrees.

Step: Two:

Using your corer slicer (I leave the peel on) slice the apples, so they make a slinky like apple when it come off. Cut down one side of the apple so that you are left with apple rings. I discard the small top and bottom slice because I want more uniform slices that will dehydrate evenly.

Step Three:

Combine lemon juice and water in a bowl and dip the apple slices before placing them on the wire baking rack.

Step Four:

Optional but so yummy. Sprinkle the apple slices with cinnamon and sugar and repeat until your wire racks are full. Bake for 25 minutes and check to see if the apples are baking evenly. I recommend rotating the racks at this point because the top rack cooks faster.

Step Five:

Bake for another 30-35 minutes. Some apple chips may still feel soft at this point may need to bake a bit longer. I usually take them out and once they have cooled they crisp up. If you think they need longer check them every 5 minutes until they are done.
