APPLE CHIPS

We've had some floury old apples lying around for ages that nobody wanted to eat, so i decided to experiment with apple chips.  I made a tray full... and then quickly prepared another four batches because they were that amazing! They're paper thin, as crispy as a potato chip and taste like sweet apple pie.  They also happen to make the perfect healthy snack for a toddler that never seems to stop eating.  Anyway I just had to share the recipe (if you can call it that, there's only one ingredient!).
What you need:
Raw apples (we've discovered that sweeter, older apples actually taste and work better as chips!)

What you do:
- Preheat the oven to 100 degrees (fan bake if you have it)
- Line a baking tray with baking paper
- Slice the apples (core and all) into thin pieces using a mandolin grater or regular vegetable peeler
- Spread apple out on the tray making sure they don't overlap
- Bake for 1 hour (if you don't have fan bake or your apples are particularly juicy you may have to bake them for longer.  Having said this, they don't get really nice and crispy until they have cooled off so be patient!).
- Allow to cool for a few minutes
- Either store in an air tight container or eat right away!
I have been putting them into little bags to take with us as snacks and they've been a big hit.  I imagine they would also make great cake toppers.
