- Homemade dried apples
Step 1 - Picking out the apples
It's fun to go and pick your own and you can apparently get improve quality apples! But you can also dry apples that you bought at a grocery store or farm market.
Also, you don't want gooey, bruised or rotten apples!
- Step 2- Rinse the apples
Simply clean them in cold water, no soap. If you are going to take out the skins, don't spend too much time on it. Either way, be certain to take away any stickers that the grocery store put on the apples, though. Peelers often get suck on those.
- Step 3 - Get rid of bruises and soft spots
Cut out any bruised or soft parts.
- Step 4 - Drying the apples
You can have a food dehydrator, an oven, and a car. A food dehydrator is the lightest way that concedes to most consistent results since it was designed for drying apples. Oven can be use since everyone has one of these in their home. While car or any vehicle can be use on a hot sunny day.
- Step 5 - How to tell when they're done
You’ll know when it’s done when the apples are elastic, like a raisin from a fresh bag; not brittle. Most depict them as leathery with a deep red color, without free water or a crumby feeling. If you like them drier, more crispy, you need to dry them at least to the consistency of a raisin, or they won't keep!
- Step 6 – Chill then insert to zipper-type bags
Chill the apples to room temperature (about 20 to 30 minutes), then fill the bags but leave a little room for expansion. Try to avoiding leaving any air pockets.
- Step 7 – Keep the bags cool
If you want to keep the color of the dried apples you must store them in a cool dark and dry place approximately 6 to 9 months. If keeping them a little longer is your plan, put the bag rather on the refrigerator.
