We had a bag of apples that were starting to go wrinkly on the counter so I thought the kids would enjoy making some apple chips in the dehydrator. On one of our trips to Chattanooga we stopped at an indoor flea market and I found an apple pealer/slicer for $7.00. Not bad, normally they're between 20-30.
Logan and Paige got a kick out of peeling and slicing them at the same time, and I got free labor.
We put all the slices in a bowl and gave them a quick squirt of lemon juice to keep them from turning brown. Paige tool all the peels and cores out to the (extremely happy) chickens.
Then all the slices were placed on the dehydrating trays.
And into the dehydrator they went for about six hours.
The kids really liked them. Only about 1/2 made it into the jar.
