Introduction: How to Make Apple Chips!


These apple chips are a great snack for the fall season.

Step 1: What You'll Need:


• Apples
• Ground Cinnamon
• Ground Clove (Optional)
• Sugar
• Parchment Paper
• Baking Sheets
* Large Mixing Bowl

• Preheat your oven to 300° F

Step 2: Mix Your Ingredients


In a small bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon and clove together.  The ratio I used is:
4 tsp sugar to 1tsp each cinnamon, clove.

Step 3: Slice Up the Apples

Quarter the apple and cut it in to equally thick slices.  It is very important they are all the same (relative) thickness.

(Also, if you plan on making a large batch, do not slice all your apples at once, they will start to turn brown very quickly.)

Put the slices in a large mixing bowl.

Step 4: Spice Up the Apples!

Sprinkle your spice mixture heavily over the apple slices, and stir the batch with a spoon until they are coated evenly.

Step 5: Get Ready for the Oven...

Place the spiced apple slices on the parchment paper on your baking sheet.  Make sure none are overlapping.

Step 6: Put 'em in the Oven...

Put them in the oven.  Again, 300°(F) for about 45 minutes.

(I experimented with higher temperature and less time, but always ended up with a half burned/half un-crisp batch. They do not taste good burned!)

Check on them after half an hour.
And while you're waiting...Make another batch!

Step 7: Eat


Remove from the oven.  They will continue to crisp after you take them out.  Peel them off the parchment paper.  They should be crispy just like any other chip.

Enjoy!

    Yum!

    I always give them in a bath of cool water where I've ground up a bit of Vitamin C pill. If you prep your apples into the bath, they won't go brown.

    I usually do 200 degF for a bit longer.

    I balance as many as possible on the oven racks and prop the oven door open slightly with a wooden spoon or block of maple.

    Uh do you use this C-bath after the apples are sliced up? IF so, shouldn't you dry them before throwing them into an oven?

    yea, slice on cutting board, drop directly into the bath. When it comes time to dry, pull them out of the bath and just shake the excess off. Then place as many as you can on the rack in a single layer.

    I've never done anything more than shake them off, the oven finishes the drying.

    can do the same with oranges or figs. not sure the time for cooking though.

    If cored and sliced horizontally, it is easier to obtain slices of equal thickness that will bake evenly.

    could you core then use a deli slicer?

    if you spritz or dunk your apples in an acid solution (lemon water) it'll inhibit the browning.

    Also yummy on their own w/o the spices. :)

    Good instructable. I'll try making these for my next party!

    Wow good instructables

    Tinker - these can be made in a dehydrator my co-worker only uses that and they were delicious. I think she said it took her longer tho

    Done!

    It seemed that they would be soft, but have been perfect! Very crispy!

    Will do again for sure! Maybe without the sugar ...

    Thank you!

    PS: The house now smells great :D XD

    Cool, seem healthier than regular potato chips.

    I used a mandoline for this. Made nice and crispy chips :D

    you forgot to mention wether it was Farenheit or Celsius...
    D:
    who wants a pile of burning coal?

    1 reply

    It's obviously farenheit. 300 degrees in celsius would be idiotic. (besides, if you cook it until it's "burning coal" the smoke pouring out of your oven would be your first tip that it's too hot.)
