Some ideas for what to do with your apple orchard haul.

Apple Chips

• 6+ large fresh apples

(any kind will do)

• 3 tablespoons of cinnamon

• 2 tablespoons of sugar

Preheat oven to 200. Core and then slice apples as thin as possible. Bake for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, flipping once during bake time. Let cool for 20 minutes. The crispy apple chips keep well by sealing in an airtight bag.
