I had planned on making pomanders with these dried apples, but when I snuck one out of curiosity, they tasted too good. They taste just like the overpriced apple chips you can buy at the store.
Here’s how I stumbled upon them:
slice 5-6 apples thinly on their sides (so the star is in the center)
place on a baking try in a single layer
bake at 200 degrees F for 3-4 hours (makes the house smell so good)
let cool for 1 hour; store in air-tight container
I will core them next time, but the stars are awfully cute too. My biggest struggles with food is finding satisfying, healthy snacks. This is all of the above for me.
Today was such a long day! I had to cancel and reschedule one cub scout meeting and a Bible Study that were to be held at our house over the next 24 hours due to a virus that has hit our home. I spent the day on the phone, running some necessary errands and consoling a cranky and suffering child as much as possible in between. My compassion wears thin sometimes. I’m sorry for that. Meanwhile my counter tops and floors filled with the remnants of 8 peoples’ stuff quicker than you could shake a stick at. Somedays the Bahamas sound extra good!
Maybe a good night’s sleep [fingers crossed] will bring a brighter day tomorrow. Till then.
