We finally had a “fallish” day in South Carolina. Not really cold yet, but there was a brisk breeze (compliments of a hurricane off the coast). Since the leaves were swirling and it felt like fall, my daughter and I needed an Autumn activity.
Cinnamon Dusted Apple Rings
Yes, we could have done just plain apple rings, but if you throw in a little cinnamon, it instantly becomes “fallish.”
Apple rings also mean that we get to use the apple corer/peeler/slicer gadget. The oh so messy, sticky, juicy, drippy apple corer/peeler/slicer gadget. My kids love this thing – me – not so much. It does get the job done though.
All my boys were out-of-town, so Lacey got to do the honors all on her own. She was happy not to have to share the sticky responsibility.
1st – Prepare (peel, core, slice) your apples. Use a little lemon juice or Fruit Fresh to keep the apples from turning brown. You will want your slices fairly uniform in size so they dehydrate evenly. Mine were about ¼ inch thick.
2nd – Enter the CINNAMON. Dust to your liking, or let your 6 year old daughter do it and then you’ll have to go buy more cinnamon because she will use it ALL.
3rd – spread evenly on your dehydrator trays. We let our dehydrate overnight and they were perfect by morning. They are yummy! Good healthy after-school snacks!
I love the word “fallish.” I use it as often as possible!!
