Dehydrating Apples

Great for Apple Pies!

By dehydrating apples at home, you can have a steady supply of juicy apples available all year if you're not lucky enough to have your own apple orchard out back! How?

Simply follow the instructions below – and purchase apples when they are in season and plentiful via the grocery store in bags or from your own back yard in bushels!

Apple's best vitamins are: vitamin A, vitamin C, followed by vitamin K with trace amounts of Choline, Pantothenic Acid, and Niacin.

The mineral content of apples are Potassium, followed by Phosphorus, Calcium, Magnesium, and trace amounts of Zinc. Apples also contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.





Tip: When apples are out of season, consider using frozen apples instead. As noted in the instructions below, you won't have the peel the apples, plus you don't need to use apple juice to spray the apples in step 2 ... Now just how easy is that?

Dehydrating Apples is Easy:

If using frozen apples, ignore steps 1 and 2.

  1. Peel, core, and slice your apples by hand or with a handy apple-peeler-corer gadget.
  2. Place slices in a bowl and generously spray with lemon juice. TIP: Use a pump-top from a new unused spray bottle, pick one that fits your lemon juice bottle, look for one that has a long enough plastic tube that will reach to the bottom of your lemon juice bottle.
  3. Arrange the apple slices on your dehydrator trays, making sure the apples don't overlap.
  4. Turn on your food dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F
    (or per your food dehydrator's instructions).
  • Delicious dried apples are pliable when dried.
  • Drying time: between 4-10 hours.
  • Please remember to rotate your dehydrator trays for even drying.

Easy Food Dehydrating & Safe Food Storage

Thank you for all your help and advice!

I am a mother helping her son raise his children. There are 12 of us in the household and often times feeding all of us has been somewhat of a challenge.

Thanks to you I was able to take advantage of a markdown sale of fruits and veggies. Without proper freezer storage I usually have to pass on the sale, however I found a dehydrator at a yard sale and have used it for the first time.

The kids think I'm the greatest with the apples, and today I will try veggies. Can't wait to find those meats on sale!

THANK YOU again — you are a treasure! God bless you and your family. 

— Pam
