HOW TO DRY APPLES
Drying apples is so easy!
To dry, simply wash your apples, then create 5mm apple slices by using your Apple Peeler Corer Slicer and cutting down one edge to separate.
If you want to prevent browning, pretreat the apple slices by placing them into a bowl & covering with Lemon Juice or Unsweetened Pineapple Juice for 2-3 minutes. This doesn't affect the taste in any way, apples are still delicious when not pretreated!
Then simply lay the fruit onto the trays of the Ezidri, ensuring that they aren't touching. Dehydrate at 55 deg C for 8-12 hours until pliable, leave to cool and then enjoy!
To store, place in an airtight container in a cool, dry, dark place.
2 cups coconut
2 cups dried apples, chopped
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 Tbsp vanilla essence
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients; mix well. Shape into 1-2cm balls. Place onto mesh sheets & dehydrate at 55 deg C for 4-5 hours, or until firm & crisp on the outside.
Allow to cool, then enjoy!
