Apple Slices

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.

Apples, anyone?
