Makes about 20 rounds


2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 apples, such as Granny Smith or Pacific Beauty
2 Tbsp icing sugar
Pinch cinnamon



Heat oven to 100degC. Line a baking tray with greaseproof or baking paper and set aside.

Fill a medium-sized bowl with ice, water, and lemon juice.

Slice the apple very thinly (the thinner the better - I used a mandolin) and submerge in the water until all the apples are done.

Drain the apple slices well and place them in a single layer on prepared baking tray, dust with icing sugar and cinnamon and bake until crisp and dry - about 90 minutes.

Cool and enjoy.

Store in an airtight container for up to a week!
