Dried apple rings were popular in the 16th century, as a way of storing fruit to last for the winter. Dried fruit could be soaked and used in puddings and sauces as needed.
These keep very well and still make a nice healthy snack.
- 3-4 apples
- string and pegs (can be easier than tying knots)
- honey to serve (if you want a vegan version try serving with maple syrup.)
Making and cooking it
- Peel your apples and core them
- Slice the apples thinly, approx 1/2 cm or less
- Thread the apples onto the string, either using pegs to space them or by tying. (The rings should not touch each other or they won't dry well)
- Hang in a sunny spot, inside a window is perfect
- Leave until the rings are dry to the touch but still slightly springy when squeezed
