Turmeric Apple Chips
(Always use organic ingredients when available.)
1 organic Red Delicious apple
Ground turmeric, to taste
Ground cinnamon, to taste
Powdered ginger, to taste
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 1 1/2 hour
Servings: 4 servings
*For best results use a mandolin to get uniform thickness of slices.
Preheat the oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit and line two-three baking sheets with parchment paper.
Wash the apple and then pat it dry.
Cut off the end of the apple, and then start slicing thin rings with the seeds in the center of each ring. (They will fall out, don’t worry.) You may need to adjust the setting after a few test slices in order to get the right thickness. I prefer mine pretty thin.
In a bowl, coat the slices in lemon juice to preserve them before baking. This also adds a nice tartness.
Lay out the apple rings in a single, non-overlapping layer on the baking sheet. I was able to cover 3 baking sheets.
Lightly dash each apple with the ground turmeric, cinnamon, and ginger on one side only.
Bake for about an hour and a half, turning over once halfway through.
*The apples may still feel slightly flimsy when you take them out but they will crisp up once they cool. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
