My sister, Erin, is a homemaking genius. She has worked very hard to become so and I feel like she could teach me a great deal. If she didn't live so far from me, I would go to her house daily and learn at her feet.
Her blog, The Blessed Life, is a nice place. She has a lot to share and she makes me happy. Check it out if you have time. She just had a baby, so it may be a little slow there for a while, but there is still a lot of good to see!
My point is, she should probably be posting this since she is the one who introduced me to it.
Still, I'm very excited about it and I want to share my little accomplishment.
These apples were on their way out.
They weren't bad yet, but they were thinking about it.
You know, hanging out with the wrong crowd...
So, here's what I did with them.
First, get a cold water bath ready for them and add to it a generous amount of lemon juice.
Now, peel them an core them.
Do you have one of these? They're marvelous. I love mine. And, I feel super cool whenever I use it.
That right there is a good reason to buy it, right?
Once they're peeled and cored, drop them in the cold water and let them soak a bit.
This will help keep them white instead of brown.
Next, I laid them out on my dehydrator tray and sprinkled them with cinnamon.
I put them in the dehydrator, turned it on, and enjoyed the smell for the rest of the day!
P.S. I have an Excaliber dehydrator...in case you were wondering.
Here's what they looked like at the end of the day.
I wish you could taste them...or at least smell them.
They're gone though. My kids and husband (and maybe me a little) ate them all up!
I'm linking this up at these great parties!
