Author Notes: Put the apples into a cold oven and then turn the heat on, as this allows for some low temperature dehydration. I then turn the oven off and wait for it to cool completely before taking the skins out for the same purpose. I do not have a dehydrator and this method is working for me, but I imagine you could use a dehydrator to get similar results.

Serves: 1 per apple
- Peel your apples and arrange the peels on a parchment-lined baking sheet and place in the oven. Turn oven on to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for about 30-40 minutes, tossing once or twice. When the skins are mostly dry and crisp, turn the oven off and leave pan in there until oven cools down to ensure full dehydration.
- Enjoy alone for snacking, steeped in hot water as a “tea” or as a crunchy topping on salad, oatmeal or whatever you can think of!
