These chips are thin sliced, soaked in a simple syrup and baked low and slow.
The prep time is around 15 minutes, and cook time is 1 to 1 1/2 hours. This recipe makes about 50 chips.
Step 1: Three simple ingredients:
- 2 cups water
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 large apples or 3 small ones (I recommend gala, braeburn, or fugi)
As far as hardware, you'll need:
- baking sheets
- parchment paper
- a small pan to make the simple syrup in
- a mandoline or a sharp knife and a cutting board
- tongs (though chopsticks would work too)
- an oven set to 250 F
Step 2: Make the simple syrup.
Pour the two cups of water and sugar into your pan, and bring it to a boil. Stir it once it comes to a boil to make sure there's no sugar stuck to the bottom of the pan and it's all dissolving.
Once it's clear, turn off the heat and let it hang out while you prep the apples.
