If you just came back from a Minnesota apple orchard with a 10-pound bag of apples (what a steal!) — and you’re not quite sure what to do with them all — try this recipe from the new cookbook: Little Bites: 100 Healthy, Kid-Friendly Snacks.
Once you’ve made it, this recipe should be easy to remember: Bake for 2 hours at 200 degrees — and it makes 2 cups that can be stored for up to 2 weeks.
1 tablespoon of canola oil
Juice of 1 medium lemon (about 3 tablespoons)
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
Brush a wire rack with canola oil and place it on a baking sheet.
Core the apples and cut them into ¼-inch slices.
Toss the apple slices in a medium bowl with the lemon juice (to prevent discoloration).
Arrange the slices on the wire rack and bake for 2 hours.
Cool the apple chips completely.
Store the slices — this recipe makes about 2 cups — in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
