Apples are so naturally sweet that these crisps don’t need any sugar, just sprinklings of cinnamon, curry and ground ginger. These fruit snacks aren’t fried like most tortilla chips, simply baked in the oven to give them a delightful crunch. This recipe comes to us from Anne of Fab Frugal Food.
- a little nonstick cooking spray, to prepare the pan
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 5 cloves
- 4 apples, cored and sliced ¼ inch thick
- 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Preheat the oven to 250. Prepare 2 baking sheets with a light layer of nonstick cooking spray.
In a large pot over high heat, bring about 5 cups of water to a boil. When water boils, add the cinnamon stick and cloves.
Place the apples slices in boiling water for about 5 minutes. Drain and pat dry with towels.
Meanwhile, mix the curry powder, cinnamon and ginger together in a small bowl.
Lay the apple slices flat on the prepared baking sheets. Sift the spice mixture evenly over the apple slices.
Bake for about 2 hours, or until the apple slices start curling at the edges and turn golden. Cool thoroughly on wire racks and enjoy.
