Homemade Apple Chips

Well since I have (had) so many apples, I was looking for some new ways to use and cook with apples.  I came across this post from Oh She Glows and thought I had to try this. 

3 apples (I used Mutsu, but Angela used Granny Smith, any good tart apple would be fine)
2 teaspoon lemon juice
1.5 tablespoon organic sugar
2 teaspoon cinnamon
Sprinkle of kosher salt

Preheat oven as low as it will go.  Mine was 200 degrees. 
Line baking sheet with parchment or aluminum foil. 
Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
Slice apples very thinly, 1/4-1/8 inch wide.
Place all apple slices in a large bowl.
Pour lemon juice over apple slices and mix to incorporate the juice with all of the apple slices.
Line apple slices on baking sheet.
Sprinkle with sugar/cinnamon mixutre.
Sprinkle with a kosher salt.
Bake for 3.5-4 hours, turning apple slices every 30 minutes. 
When they curve up, they are ready.  For me, it was 3.5 hours on a 200 degree oven. 

My cinnamon mixture

Slicing apples, you can use a mandelin if you have one, but a sharp knife worked for me.

All my apples with lemon juice

Lined with parchment paper

You can see the salt, it's optional, but it was a nice touch.

The finished product.  Adam said this was one of his favorite fall snacks.  We are going to make these again.
Enjoy this yummy snack!
