I found myself with a surfeit of apples today. Some were nice and fresh, some going a wee bit soft but all needed eating. After a bit of Googling, I decided to make oven-dried apples as it seemed the easiest thing to do. I had Discoveries, Cox’s and Golden Delicious to use up.
Slice all the apples into 3mm (ish) thick slices. You don’t really have to be precise.
I cut out the middles with a mini cookie cutter, as that saved me coring the whole apples. I don’t have an apple corer, and trying to do that with a knife would have resulted in a lot of claret on the apples that didn’t belong there.
Once you have the rings ready, put them out in a single layer on baking trays lined with non stick paper or liner.
Sprinkle over cinnamon.
Bake for 1 hour in a 225F/110ºC/Gas 1/2 oven, then turn them over, and bake for another hour.
Open the oven door, turn off the heat and let them cool on the trays.
I am now trying very hard not to eat them all before hubby comes home tomorrow.
