These make a great snack to take hiking or camping, or for children to take to school. Reconstituted and patted dry on absorbent paper towels, they're ready for frying with pork chops or sausages.
12 firm but ripe apples, peeled
2 tablespoons salt
1 1/2 cups water
Dried Apple Rings Recipe at
Core the apples, slice into 1-inch thick rings, and soak for 10 minutes in the salt and water solution. Drain and thread the apple rings onto skewers. (Note: Soak wooden skewers in water overnight before using.)

Place in a preheated 140 degrees F oven, alternating the apple rings on the rungs of the oven racks so that they are not touching. Bake for 4-5 hours or until leathery but pliable.

Let cool for 10-12 hours on dish towels. Place in a labeled airtight container in a cool, dark place. Soak for 24 hours in water to reconstitute.

Oven-drying is a more exact method than sun-drying; the only problem can be in keeping your oven at the correct, low temperature. Your aim in drying is not to heat the food, but rather to remove the moisture from it.

what are the skewers for?
I can not figure out how the apples are supposed to be threaded on the skewers. Put one apple ring per skewer? does a skewer filled with apple rings go in the oven? It is a puzzle.
