Cinnamon Apple Chips

We are big apple-eaters at my home…. We go through hundreds a year!!… I mean…. Ok, that might be bit of an overstatement, but it sure feels like it sometimes! I seem to drag bags and bags of apples home from the Union Sq Farmers Market every week. Its always a bit of a workout… For some reason the farmers market always decides to be open on the days Im already carrying like 3 heavy bags!!? So, Im always finding myself walking in the door all sweaty and with long arms, because I just had to ALSO buy a big bag of apples on the way…:-)
Every year my husband and I take a weekend trip Upstate NY to go apple picking. We went last weekend and brought home a large bag. So here’s the first apple recipe of the fall! Im sure its not gonna be the last:-)
Cinnamon Apple Chips
  • 2 small green apples (i used Crispin)
  • 2 tsp coconut palm sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp honey or agave

Turn the oven to 220 degrees. Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper.

On a mandolin, or with a knife, slice the apples very thin. Pop out the seeds.

Bring 3 cups of water and honey to a boil in a large pan. In 2 batches, boil the apples for about 2-3 min, till translucent. Let the apples dry a minute on a paper towel, then spread out on the baking tray. Sprinkle with a mixture of coconut palm sugar and cinnamon.

Bake in the middle of the oven for 1,5 – 2 hours. (depending on how thick the slices are) The apples will not turn crisp until they have cooled. Take one out and let cool, to check for doneness. Store in an airtight container.

    These look fantastic. I like the idea of blanching the apples before baking them…I can’t wait to try this!

      You could use regular Sugar In The Raw as a substitute:-)
