Kids In the Kitchen: Apple Chips

JohnnyAs I mentioned last week we made the most scrumptious apple chips when we were studying Johnny Appleseed.  We used a mandolin to cut the apples in very thin slices.

IMG_8288We placed the apple slices on the trays of the dehydrator.

IMG_8289We found this wonderful cinnamon and sugar grinder at Trader Joes.

IMG_8290The kids ground the cinnamon and sugar on the apple chips.

IMG_8295We dried our apple chips overnight.  The amount of time for drying will vary based on how thick the apples were cut.

IMG_8296I have had this dehydrator since my college days. It is very old. Here is the current American Harvest dehydrator.
