2 cups unsweetened apple juice
1 cinnamon stick or 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
2 Red Delicious, McIntosh, or Empire apples
Preheat oven 250 degrees. In a large pot or deep skillet, bring apple juice and cinnamon to a boil. Simmer juice while preparing apples. Cut a slice from the top and bottom of each apple. With a vegetable peeler or apple corer, remove seed core from each apple. Slice cored apples thinly into rings. Drop sliced apples into simmering juice, in small batches. Cook 5 – 6 minutes or until apple slices are translucent. Remove apples from juice and drain. Arrange slices in a single layer on a cookie rack. Bake in oven 60 minutes or until apples are golden and dry. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
