Crunchy and Healthy Snack: Easy Homemade Turmeric Spiced Apple Chips Recipe

0  comments

There’s a classic, timeless allure to apple chips, an easygoing, humble, yet surprisingly delicious snack. But what if we could elevate them a notch? And what if the magic ingredient was the golden beauty we know as turmeric? Today, let’s explore a fantastic flavor universe with an enticing marriage of sweet, savory, and spicy that’s addictive in the best way possible: Turmeric Spiced Apple Chips.

Ingredients List

For these ethereal slices of crispy apple goodness imbued with a tantalizing tang of turmeric, you will need:

  • 3 regular-sized, ripe, but still firm apples
  • 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder
  • An optional pinch of sea salt and paprika for a savory twist
  • 2 teaspoons of agave nectar or honey for pleasant sweetness

Providing alternatives, if you prefer a sugar-free alternative, you can leave out the agave nectar or honey.

Instructions

Fear not, the making of these delightful little snacks is as simple as a summer breeze. Here’s your map to taste-town:

  1. Preheat your oven to its lowest setting, usually around 200°F (90°C). We are going for a slow dehydrate rather than an outright bake, which will ensure the apple chips are perfectly crispy.

  2. Now, turn those apples into thin, uniform slices. A mandoline slicer is perfect for the task, but a knife will work too with a bit of care. Keep the peels on for added fiber and flavor.

  3. Time for our star ingredient – turmeric. Sprinkle the turmeric powder along with any optional add-ons (salt, paprika) over the apple slices and give them a gentle stir to make sure every piece gets its share of the golden touch.

  4. Arrange these soon-to-be golden bites of joy on a baking sheet covered with baking paper, ensuring none overlap.

  5. Slide the sheet into the oven and let this slow transformation unfold over the next 2 hours. Flip the apple slices after an hour to ensure even cooking.

Cooking Time and Servings

With a slow oven roast at a low temperature, this recipe will take about 2 hours to cook. The quantity noted above should yield about 4 servings, perfect for a family snack or a couple of days of solo munching.
