  • Optimal Baking: Maintain a low oven temperature to dry out the apple slices slowly, preventing them from burning.
  • Experiment with Flavors: Don’t hesitate to try various spices like clove or cardamom for new flavor profiles in your batches.
  • Batch Preparation: Make large batches at once to maximize oven use, especially when apples are in peak season.
  • Monitoring: Keep a close eye on the baking process, as oven temperatures can vary, affecting the crispiness of the chips.
  • Cooling is Key: Let the chips cool completely on the baking sheet to enhance their crisp texture.

  11. Visiting from The Makers link party today! I can’t believe how simple it is to make these. And they turned out so beautifully. Pinned to try πŸ™‚

  12. Are you using a dehydrator or baking oven for this? Mine burned =(
    Please advise. Thank you

  13. I used my oven, you have to watch them extremely closely. I even mentioned in the post I had a slight problem as well.

  14. Yeah I saw it too.. But yours came out quite perfect.. Mine starts with the apple shrink then the skin started to get burn and slowly whole piece burned.. I’m wondering if I should not use convection function for baking this chips

  15. That’s weird. Yes, give that a try it should be more even. Sorry you have to go through this, I’d love to know if the convection works!
