The reason for knowing this little later was because I never made at home. Whenever I tasted them elsewhere, it was sprinkled with cinnamon. I am not a big fan of cinnamon in desserts so it was a pretty thing sitting on the plate good for a nibble or 2.
While working on the chips theme, when I started preparing the chips, I suddenly decided to go without cinnamon.
Because cinnamon lends a beautiful woody color, I did not want to miss on that color. I added raw sugar (brown sugar) I really do not know what raw sugar is, but I had a packet. You can use ordinary sugar as well.
1 apple cut in thin slices (I did not core or deseed)
2 tspn raw sugar
1) Spread the apple slices evenly on a lined baking sheet.
2) Sprinkle the sugar on top. Pop it in a preheated oven at the lowest temperature (mine was 150c which is high.
3) It will becomes crispy in 2 hours (at 90 min – do a check)
4) The sugar burnt in my case as it was raw sugar. But it does not taste bitter, it infact gave a sweet caramelized taste.
In my oven it took about 1 hour 5 min. I tossed it around after 45 min. I also let it stand overnight in the switched off oven.
These tasted very close to what we get in the fruit based muesli. They were yummy to chew on.
