Kids Cooking Thursday: Apple Chewies FTW!

A cross between dried apples, and the crunchy apples sold with licensed characters on the packets, this was something Oma made for the kids. Ttrue, they didn't help, but if they had been at my mum's place I'm sure they would have enjoyed this cooking activity.

Just peel some apples (my mother used the last from her own tree), and use one of those spiral slicers to make a spring. (very kid friendly!) Then carefully cut down the centre of the spiral to create half rings, and place in a dehydrator. I think it went overnight. Master Two can eat about twenty apples worth of these by himself - he loves them, and it's so healthy - no added sugar, or sulphates, or other preservatives you find in commercial products!
