Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 2 min.
Apple crisps
Preheat the oven to 210°F (100°C).

Rinse and dry 1 apple.

Remove the core with an apple-corer (as in this photo). You can peel the apple, if you prefer, but this is not essential.

Stage 2 - 3 min.
Apple crisps
Slice the apple(s) very thinly. The best tool for this is a mandolin.

Stage 3 - 2 min.
Apple crisps
Arrange the apple slices, without overlapping, on a sheet of cooking parchment and slide this onto a baking sheet.

Stage 4 - 1 min.
Apple crisps
You can sprinkle a little caster sugar over the apples if you like, but this is not essential.

Stage 5 - 2 hours
Apple crisps
Bake in the oven for about 2 hours.

To check if the crisps are ready, take one off the baking sheet and leaving it to cool. It should be brittle and crisp, not soft and bendy.

Stage 6
Apple crisps
Unstick the apple slices from the paper (which you can reuse) while they are still hot and leave to cool on a wire rack.
You will get the best results with well-flavoured, slightly sharp apples, such as reinettes or Cox's orange pippin.
Several days in an airtight tin.
Home made.
