    Default The Zero Ounce UL Apple.

    DSCN0349a.jpgCaught you!

    Yep I took three sour Granny Smiths ran them through the Mandolin on ultra thin dropped them in a bowl with water and a squirt of lemon juice...spread on the dryer two trays per apple, Dusted Powder sugar and cinnimon and a dash of nutmeg.... looks like four hours must roate the trays every hour.

    Dryer,
    Mandonin
    Apple corer (you need this or the mandolin makes peices)


    WEIGHS NEXT TO NOTHING IN A GLAD BAG> YUM.

    Dried apples are great. If you want awesome, try drying fresh strawberries. Cut them in half, put them seed-side-down on the trays, and dry. Then toss them in gorp or in your granola for breakfast.

    The 1/2 part wont work in drying - freeze dried or dried Big Cranky.... its about removing water. thin slices will work better! just like my post about solar panels the biggest discovery was thinner smaller closer together lines makes more power...

    3 Grannys = 3oz - AWESOME!

    We've been drying strawberries by cutting them in half for twenty years. NOW you tell me I'm doing it wrong. Huh.

    Anyway, thin slices don't work because they stick to the tray. The point of putting the seed side down is to prevent this.
