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.
string and pegs (can be easier than tying knots)
honey to serve (if you want a vegan version
try serving with maple syrup.)
 Peel your apples and core them. Slice them thinly, approx 1/2 cm / 1/5 inch or less.
 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.)
 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.
