Dehydrated Apple Rings – Apple Chips

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

Making dehydrated apple rings is such a great way to preserve your fruit harvest. They make fabulous quick and healthy snacks that are so easy to make. This is a great beginner food preservation project. First, you need a food dehydrator. Here are a few to choose from!

When my kids were little, we used to make apple chips regularly. The kids thought it was fun to help me use the apple peeler, corer, and slicer. They felt so grown up using the kitchen tools.

To this day, 12 years after the habit started in kindergarten, my two sons still like to grab a bowlful of apple slices to snack on at their desks while working on their school lessons.

I like that these healthy snacks have a tendency to keep my teenage sons belly’s a little fuller so they don’t eat me out of ‘house and home’.

Preparing apples to make dehydrated apple rings - apple chips.

peel, slice, and core

The first step is that you want to peel, core, and slice the apples into 1/4 inch slices.

We like to use the apple corer, slicer, peeler, and then use a knife to cut through the spiral, leaving a full apple ring slice.

Load the dehydrator trays with a layer of your sliced apples leaving a small space between each. Turn on the dehydration at 145 degrees F. Your apples will be done when they are very dry to the touch. This can take anywhere from 6 to 12 hours depending on how thick your apple slices are as well as on your individual dehydrator.

Store your dehydrated apples in an airtight container.

Once your dehydrated apple rings are entirely dry, allow your apple slices to cool. Place dry apple rings in an airtight container and store them in a cool, dry place. Make sure you label what they are and the date you dehydrated them.

Beautiful dehydrated apples.
