A is for Apple
Get ready for an overdose of apples! Ours are ripe and ready for picking. Now the question is what am I going to do with them all?
B is for Baking
Many moons ago, on a trip to San Francisco, I saw a mandoline on sale in one of the department stores. It was another piece of kitchen equipment bought to gather dust at the back of a cupboard.
Well, no more! What better way than to put it to use on my apples and make some apple chips. Just slice the apples and dip in some lemon water, place on a Silpat sheet and bake in a very low oven for 1-2 hours. Easy!
C is for Chips
Keep apple chips in an airtight container and eat within a few days.
Oh, and if you are going to use a mandolin, please use the guard, bits of sliced finger need a different oven temperature to the apples.... I know!
