Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Need A Mandolin to Slice The Apples?

Using a mandolin will produce thin and even slices, but if you don’t have one you can use a very sharp knife to slice the apples.

How Thin Should The Slices Be?

For crispy and crunchy chips, slice the apples ⅛-inch thick. Thicker slices will produce softer more flexible chips.

Do I Need To Core The Apples?

It is not indispensable, but removing the seeds makes them more attractive and easier to eat. You can use an apple corer, a small cookie cutter, or a knife to cut around the core after slicing the apples.

How Do I Prevent The Apples From Burning?

Baking them at 200 F will not burn the apples, but keep an eye on them towards the end of the baking time.

How Long Will It Take For The Apple Chips To Crisp Up?

If you can slice the apples thinly, they take 2-3 hours to crisp up, but they may take longer if the slices are thicker or the apples have more sugar content. Test the chips towards the end of the baking time. They need to be crisp to the touch when cooled down for a few minutes.

Can I Add Different Flavors To The Apple Chips?

You can sprinkle them with cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, cloves, or your favorite spices.

What If My Apple Chips Aren’t Crispy After Baking?

They may need more baking time, but let them cool down in the oven for about one hour. If they’re still not crispy enough, bake them for 30 mins more.

Can I Make These Apple Chips In A Convection Oven?

A convection oven will cook the chips faster, so keep an eye on them because they will cook faster.
