Apple Crisps, perfect for a slow autumn day.

We recently acquired a whole heap of apples, I am just one of those people who cannot say no to free food, especially when it is fresh fruit/vegetables. So this weekend I’m working my way througb trying out a few apple recipes, there may be a bit of apple overload on my bog. Apologies. It’s good to be seasonal though isn’t it.

I love Pinterest for ideas and inspiration. Today a quick apple search reminded me of apple crisps which I tried to make once before and was very disappointed. With so many apples to hand and some time to read through a number of different techniques I decided to revisit the idea. This time I was successful. So successful that my first batch were greedily devoured by the toddler very quickly and I have to make more.

Ingredients
  1. 4 apples
  2. 1/2 cup lemon juice
  3. 4 cups water
  4. 1 tsp cinnamon
  5. 1 tsp sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 1/140C
  2. Slice the apples horizontally as thinly as possible (going through the core so you get a pretty star shape).
  3. Keep the skin on and do not worry about coring the apples first.
  4. Line a baking tray with parchment and lightly grease it.
For plain apples
  1. Mix the lemon juice and water together and place the apple slices in the mixture.
  2. Remove, shake off excess water and place on the baking trays.
For spiced apples
  1. Mix the cinnamon and sugar together
  2. Lightly coat the apple slices in the mixture and place on the trays
  3. Bake the apple slices for about 3 hours, checking and turning every 30 minutes. For chewy apple slices remove them slightly earlier, if you leave them longer they will crisp up.
  4. Store in an airtight tin.
