Dehydrating Apples

Great for Apple Pies!

By dehydrating apples at home, you can have a 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!

How to Dehydrate Apples

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.
