Dried Apple Slice
Now you can have that aroma of fresh apple pie in your kitchen- that smell that is so irrestible. Dried apple slices are easy to make by following a few simple instructions
8-10 apples ( I find Red Romas work the best)
3/4 cup of lemon juice
2 tsp. of salt
8 tsp. of ground cinnamon
2 tsp. of ground allspice
1 tsp of ground cloves
Combine the lemon juice and salt in a large bowl
Peel and core the apples and cut into slices about 1/4 inch thick
Soak the slices of apples in the lemon juice and salt for about 5 minutes making sure all of the slices are covered with the liquid.
Place slices on a paper towel and pat dry as much as possible
Combine the cinnamon, allspice and cloves mixing thoroughly and then sprinkle both sides of the apple slices with this mixture.
Place slices in a single layer on a cookie sheet
Dry in a 150 degree oven for about 6 hours- they should be thoroughly dried and pliable but not brittle
These apple slices will be perfect to craft with ..add them to wreaths, garlands, arrangements and potpourri....the smell is will be like having fresh apple pie everyday without the baking !
NOW THESE ARE GREAT FOR CRAFTS-SMELL GOODS,WREATHS AND MORE MMMM
