We woke up this morning to the wonderful smell of apples.
Dehydrated apples. So good!
Yesterday my seven year old daughter took charge of the apple peeler/corer/slicer and filled my dehydrator with apple slices. She sliced a large bag of apples that were a little past the crisp, crunchy stage. If you have a dehydrator, don’t forget to use it to preserve fruits that are just past the point of eating fresh. When it’s a little on the ripe side, the natural sweetness of the fruit will be even better.
I love to dehydrate fruit. I don’t put anything on it. We’ve never had a problem with the fruit browning too much. Just peel, slice and turn it on. Sometimes I don’t even peel the fruit. I always get wonderful results. When I dehydrate fruit, I slice it up before we go to bed and it’s ready when we wake up in the morning.
It’s such a tasty, natural snack. And today, it was a great snack to nibble on while we watched the first snowfall of the year.
