Are These Apples Healthy?

Yes! They are a low calorie and high fiber snack.

How Do You Store Dried Apples?

You should keep dehydrated apples in a zip lock or tightly sealed bag/container. You do not want them going stale or soaking up other flavors from your pantry. If properly stored at a cool room temperature, they will last for 6-9 months.

Why Everyone Loves These Dehydrated Apples

  • Health in a Bite: With a meager 130 calories per serving and a generous dose of fiber, these apple snacks are guilt-free and nutritious. They’re the superheroes of the snack world!
  • Long-Lasting Delight: Can you believe these yummy treats stay fresh for up to 9 months in your pantry? That’s right, they’re the gift that keeps on giving.
  • Versatility at Its Best: Whether it’s a quick snack, a topping for your morning oatmeal, or a sweet addition to your trail mix, dehydrated apples fit the bill perfectly.

The Secret to Making Dehydrated Apples

Making dehydrated apples is like crafting a piece of art. It starts with 20 small, perfectly ripe apples, a bath in a lemon juice and water mixture to retain their beautiful color, and then a long, slow dance in the dehydrator while sprinkled with cinnamon & sugar. The result? Thin, chewy slices of apple goodness that are just impossible to resist.

A Snack for All Seasons

Whether it’s the middle of summer or the depths of winter, dehydrated apples are always in season. They’re the perfect snack for a hike, a cozy movie night, or just a mid-afternoon munch. Plus, with their impressive shelf life, they’re always there when you need a sweet, healthy pick-me-up.

3 Tips for Making Perfect Dehydrated Apples

  1. The Thinner, the Better: Thinly sliced apples dehydrate more evenly and provide that perfect chewiness we all love.
  2. Lemon Bath: Don’t skip the lemon juice and water mix. It’s the secret to keeping your apples from turning brown.
  3. Patience Pays Off: Dehydrate at 135 degrees for 10 hours to achieve that ideal texture.
