I have used the Paderno Spiralizer for years now, I’m a little obsessed! It’s by far my fav kitchen tool and essential for healthy, clean eating. I love the versatility of the blades that comes with it. Big noodles, small noodles, shredding to making chips or slaws; it’s the best brand I’ve used. I always make zucchini pasta with it and cucumber noodles are delish too. One of my new favorite recipes is to make apple chips with it. I use the straight blade for making the chips.
- cinnamon and cardamom to taste ( I used about 1/8 tsp of each)
- 3 drops Thieves by Young Living
- ½ lemon, pressed or squeezed
- 2 apples (I love pink lady)
Dehydrating time: 4 hours at 115 degrees
Baking time: 200 degrees for 2 hours
The apples tend to come off in long strands of chips so feel free to cut or trim them to your desired size. Make sure and remove the seeds too. Once you are done spiralizing, add the apples to a large bowl, pour the lemon juice with Thieves all over the apples and dust as much cinnamon and cardamom as you wish. Play with your flavor cravings and have fun with it! The lemon does add a little zing to the flavor but I love that and I also use it so the apples don’t turn completely brown.
Onto the NescoFood Dehydrator… I’ve used this guy for 10 years. Yes, the same dehydrator. This thing is tried, true and very well priced! I have ordered a few other trays and screens for it too. Love, love, love. For the apple chips the Nesco is perfect! I use a regular tray and just add the apples directly on. I don’t layer them perfectly, I just spread them out, set the temp at 115 degrees (this still keeps them “raw” with all the nutrients locked in). You should dehydrate the apples for about 4 hours. Wait….. no dehydrator? Well, you SHOULD have one but if you don’t you can bake the chips at 200 for about an hour. Just simply cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the apples on it. Be sure to check your apples at around 45 minutes since oven temps differ. Shift your chips around so they bake more evenly and bake for another 45min-hour. You can bake them longer if needed for your desired texture. Be prepared for your kitchen to smell like apple pie! Try not to eat all the chips off the tray before they are done dehydrating or baking. Enjoy!
