Today I dehydrated apples. The picture shows the granny smith apples. I purchased an electric peeler and a salad shooter to make this task a bit easier. However, they are only time savers and not necessary for preparing the apples for the dehydrator.
How to Dehydrate Apples
I peeled each apple, then cut them into 4 equal pieces. Then I kept them in a lemon/water bath until I had 3 apples cut up. I next placed them into the salad shooter and aimed it over the lemon/water bath.
After I had about 6 apples sliced I put them on the dehydrator shelf and placed them into the dehydrator. The dehydrator was set at 135 degrees, as per the instructions for fruit. In my five shelf dehydrator I was able to fit 2 bags of apples.
