Dried Apples

Dried Apples

Dried apple rings were popular in the 16th century, as a way of storing fruit to last for the winter. Dried fruit could be soaked and used in puddings and sauces as needed.These keep very well and still make a nice healthy snack.

Ingredients
3-4 apples
string and pegs (can be easier than tying knots)
honey to serve (if you want a vegan version
try serving with maple syrup.)

Approach

[1] Peel your apples and core them. Slice them thinly, approx 1/2 cm / 1/5 inch or less.

[2] Thread the apples onto the string, either using pegs to space them or by tying. (The rings should not touch each other or they won’t dry properly.)

[3] Hang in a sunny spot, inside a window is perfect. Leave until the rings are dry to the touch but still slightly springy when squeezed.
