Ingredients

1 tsp salt

1 lemon

1.5 kg (organic) apples

Preparation

Mix 750 ml water with the salt. Halve the lemon and squeeze out the juice. Add the lemon juice to the salt solution.

Wash the apples, pat dry, remove the core and cut into very thin rings. Add the rings to the lemon juice solution and soak the apple rings in the solution for 10 minutes. Lift the rings out of the liquid with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Pat dry.

Two methods

The quick method in the oven.

For this method, the apple rings are placed on the oven rack and the oven is then switched to 50°C fan oven; the door should remain slightly open. To allow the moisture to evaporate, I put a wooden spatula in the oven door. It takes about 3.5 – 6 hours for the slices to dry, depending on their thickness. Allow to cool completely and store in a dry place.

The energy-saving one.

The apple rings are threaded onto a string. This is then hung in front of a heater until the rings are dry. This takes 1-3 days (depending on how much you use the heating). Store in a dry place.

Why this is better for you

The dried apples are a low-calorie, Christmas snack for in between. They contain only the naturally occurring sugar of the apples.
