Baked Chai-Spiced Apple Chips

It's been years since I've owned a dehydrator. So, when I received the Oven Crisp Baking Tray from NordicWare*, I decided that I wanted to try to make apple chips in my oven. I tried three different kinds of apples, different temperatures, different thicknesses of apples, and different baking times before I came up with this recipe.


I received a Chai spice blend from the Spice House, but if you don't have that, you can make your own with sugar, ground cardamom, ground cloves, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground black pepper, and some vanilla bean powder.


As I mentioned, I tested three different apples: Envy apples, Granny Smith apples, and an heirloom variety grown locally called the Strawberry Parfait apples. The latter were the ones I preferred in the end. They produced more moist chips with a slight chew. And, I'll be honest, I loved the pink flecks in their flesh.

Ingredients makes 2 trays

  • 3 to 4 small apples (again, I liked the Strawberry Parfait apples for this purpose)
  • 1 t Chai spice
  • 1 T organic granulated sugar

Procedure

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Slice the apples with a mandolin slicer. Because I liked them on the thicker side, I used setting two for these. 


Place the apples in a large mixing bowl. 


Add the remaining ingredients and toss to coat completely. Let stand for at least 10 minutes. They will begin to get a little bit syrupy as they sit.


Arrange apples slices on the the Oven Crisp Baking Tray. Bake in the preheated oven till apples are dried and edges are curling up, approximately 40 to 45 minutes. Transfer apple chips, using a metal spatula, to a wire rack until cooled and crispy.


Note that they will not feel crispy until they cool down. Enjoy immediately or place them in an airtight container and eat within a week. Honestly, ours never lasted the evening.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
