Autumn is upon us, and I canít get enough! Last week I took a trip to the apple orchards and came home with 60 pounds of fruit. This is one fun way to enjoy them.

A mandolin slicer works great for achieving paper-thin, uniform slices. However, if you donít have one (I donít) a sharp knife and some patience works just fine.


  • 2 firm, medium-size apples
  • 2 t. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg


Step 1

Preheat oven to 225F. Slice apples into very thin rings. I leave the core in because I think it makes a prettier apple chip, but you can remove it if you like.

Step 2

Place apple rings on a lined baking sheet in a single layer.

Step 3

In a small bowl, mix together sugar and spices. Sprinkle over apple rings.

Step 4

Place baking sheet in the oven. Baking time will depend on the thickness and water content of your apple slices. They should be done in 1 1/2-2 hours. Remove when crisp.

All I can say is that picture made me hungry for apple slices.

If you truly want a party in your mouth - try fresh apple slices and blue cheese !!

My mandolin slicer was only $5 and it's great for all sorts of good fruit and veg salads. I'd like to try this. Thanks.

love this idea. I've made potato chips, but I've never thought about apples. awesome idea. thank you !!! think I'll try Granny Smith. they're nice and tart, and leave the sugar and cinnamon off. your right a mandolin slicer would work great for any type of chips.
for those who are looking for different types just research online. it really depends on what your needs are,an how often you will be using them. as far as the cost. Amazon carries most of them at a good cost.

Sounds good. For those of you looking for a Mandolin slicer, they are ubiquitous in home goods stores, and generally cost between $20 and $40, and they do more than just make even slices. If you just want something that makes even slices, I bought something called the Fabulous Feamster in a hardware store for about $5. It's small, so if space is an issue, it's a good option.
