apple chips

Got a couple of hours to sit back and let your oven work for you? Want your house to smell great? Want to make a treat that is healthy and delicious?

Well, step right up! This here is the greatest snack ever invented. It will cure bad weather blues, scurvy, and all kinds of aches and pains. It will give your skin a healthy glow, reverse air pollution, and empty the landfills. It will even make your dog mind you.

Okay... at least it is healthy and delicious. And it does make the house smell good. All appley and cinnamony and delicious.

These apple chips require just apples. If they are particularly tart, you may want to add some sugar (I did), and if you like cinnamon with your apples, by all means don't hold back. You won't regret it.

For me, they translate into a good way to transport apples in lunch bags without getting complaints about them turning brown and yucky.

Really, all you do is core the apples and then slice them really thin (get out your mandolin), and bake them for a long time at a low temperature. They are so easy, the hardest part is keeping the kids from eating them before you have a chance to pack them into lunch boxes.

Set the oven to 250. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This is a must. You will never scrape them off the pan if you don't.

Lay the apple slices out in a single layer, and sprinkle on sugar and cinnamon as desired. Bake them for 2 hours, until the are dried and crispy.
