It’s autumn, Pinterest is full of pictures of delicious and healthy (some more than others) recipes, and I figured I wanted to try my hand on something new.
I’m not usually a fan of apples, however I do like the dried variety, and I figured this would be a good thing to try for a snack (and then maybe even make granola, if they last that long!)
So trawling Pinterest I found a recipe that seemed fairly simple
Bought me some apples (Gala, Cox and Granny Smith, to get a bit of variety)
Here’s what to do if you want to try!
Core and slice apples in thin to medium slices depending on how crispy or chewy you’d like your’s to be (I kept the skin on but you can peel them if you like to first)
Arrange on baking trays and sprinkle with cinnamon and cardamom if you like, before putting in oven to dry / bake. I would imagine other spices such as nutmeg, ginger or maybe even a drizzle of honey might work well too!
DON’T put in on a too high heat because this will be the result, as well as a very smokey kitchen!
The key is to listen to your husband when he says “hmm.. I smell something burning” and not just answer “nah it will be the cinnamon and cardamom I put on the apple slices.” Trust me, it won’t be just the smell of spices!
So lesson learnt this time – must try again! I think there is still potential that this will work out ok, so I am determined to make this work, however for the time being, it’s 0-1 in Cecilia vs oh I don’t know – heat?
