Baked Apple Chips

Every autumn Eric and I go to the cider mill in St. Johns, host a fall dinner party, and go apple picking. Sadly, this year there will be no apple picking. The dry, scorching hot summer hurt a lot of farmers, including the apple orchards. Even if we can't pick our own apples this year, we can still buy them at the grocery store. So I am starting my apple cooking/baking with apple chips, a tasty, healthy autumn snack.

1 apple
1 tablespoon cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1/2 tablespoon sugar
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 

Mix cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, and salt together in a small bowl. Set aside.

Cut both ends of the apple. Using a mandoline, slice the apples as thin as possible. The thinner the slices, the crisper your chips will be. Remove any seeds from the slices.

Place the apple slices on the baking sheets in a single later. Rub the spice mixture onto one side of the apple slices.

I almost forgot to take a picture of the unbaked apple chips.

Bake for 30 minutes, flip the chips over, and bake for another 30 to 60 minutes or until the chips are lightly browned and crisp. Allow to cool.

I love how the edges become wavy.
