A few days ago we dried apples. It was great fun!
First, we filled a sink with water, and washed the apples. Then we cored one, using Grandma’s new apple corer, and watched it twirl around and around, making spirals!
We had a bit of a play with it, making it s t r e t c h. 🙂
Next we dropped it into a cup of lemon juice, so it wouldn’t get brown. We let it soak for a while, and cored another apple while we waited. After we thought it had been in there long enough (we’d finished coring the next apple), we took it and laid it out on a lemon juicer, and dunked the next apple.
After it had drained long enough for us to core another apple, we broke the first apple into rings, and arranged them on the dehydrator, being careful not to put them on top of each other.
When we finished the apples, we put the dehydrator on, and cleaned up. We like dried apples crunchy, so we left them on a little longer than the recipe said. They were delicious. 🙂
