Dehydrator Recipe: Granny Smith Apples

Dried fruit is absolutely delicious, but it's seriously overpriced at the store! Don't waste your money, make dehydrated apples at home!

I don’t know about any of you, but Hubby and I both LOVE dehydrated fruit. We used to eat it all the time before Bee was born.

Now that Bee is here and we are living off just one income, our dehydrated fruit budget has disappeared almost completely. I haven’t bought any since she was a couple months old.

My celebrated my birthday at the end of last month. Hubby gave me a food processor, Bee gave me a George Foreman grill, and my parents got me a this AMAZING dehydrator! It’s awesome… it comes with 5 trays and you can buy extra to expand it. Love it.  Highly recommend it!

Do you know how awesome it is to be able to eat dehydrated fruit for a fraction of what it costs at the store?!

I’ve been dehydrating everything! Every week or two I’m going to share a different recipe with you.

This week: Dehydrated Apples!

Dried fruit is absolutely delicious, but it's seriously overpriced at the store! Don't waste your money, make dehydrated apples at home!

It’s simple. Peel an apple, cut it in half, remove the core from each half, slice apples.

Place pieces on a dehydrator tray. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Turn the dehydrator to 135 degrees Fahrenheit. Check on the apple in 5 hours. The thinner slices should be ready to remove at this point while the thicker ones might take a little longer.

These things are way better than anything I’ve purchased from the store, too. I’m so, so, so glad I have a dehydrator now!

One other thing that I like about making them myself? I can make as much as I want! 1 apple, 50 apples… it doesn’t matter!

Today I’ve been dehydrating apples since 5am. I dehydrated 3lbs first thing this morning, then I decided to dehydrate another 3lbs once the first batch was done. In a couple hours I’m going to have a gallon bag full of dehydrated apples! And it only cost me $6!

If you love dehydrated apples as much as we do, you definitely need to pin this!
