Apple Chips is a healthy snack, naturally sweet and does not make you fat! What’s more, you can use old and going to rot apple to make this.pssst.. ‘Nobody knows’ if you serve them, its delicious. This is the first time I made this btw, and I use a long long overdue apple that has been sitting in the fridge maybe close to 2 months? Its the same batch of apple I use to make the Chekai Apple Strudel .
Hello.. I am living by my new Cheapaholic Rules: So I keep the old apple and make something out of it.
So firstly, slice the apple paper thin.
 Then use a paper towel to dry it, or air dry it under the fan, or you can sun dry it, depending how much time and effort you want to put in. I just blot dry it with paper towel  and fan it for a while. If you are concerned about the apple oxidation, you can soak the apple slices in the lemon or salt water before drying it. I did not do that because, when you bake  it in the oven, the apple slices will turn brown eventually. Nobody knows you skip 1 process. wahahhhaa .
Using the baking sheet,  spread the apple slice evenly, set the oven to 150 degree for 10 minutes to slow roast/bake/dry it in the oven, repeat the process every 5-10 minutes until you feel it turn crisp. The apple will shrink and darken.  You really have to be patient here, and do not rush it by increasing the temperature. The apple slices can burn easily. You don’t want to waste the apple right?
How to know the apple chips are ready?
They should feel dry and papery to the touch. It may not feel crispy when its still warm but it’ll turn crispy when its cool enough. Try not to remove the apple chips right after its done in the oven, let it cool and dry in the oven. To save time  you can bake the apple chips halfway done and put it aside, continue with the others. Then combine all together and bake another 5-10 minutes, repeat until all is bake evenly and turn crispy, let it cool for say 30 minutes, and if its not crispy enough, bake for another 3-5 minutes.
Tadaa!! Apple Chipsaholic. I don’t get to keep them in the jar for snacking later on, my dear hubby can’t stop eating them.
