Apple Chips

Golden delicious apples
Caster / Confectioners Sugar
Sesame seeds
Red Chilli Powder

Slice the apples horizontally into slices around 1 mm thick. As far as possible maintain uniform thickness, because different thicknesses will mean different baking times.

Take a baking tray, line with wax paper or parchment paper. Thoroughly cover with the confectioners sugar. Place the slices on the tray in a layer. Donot overlap the slices of apple. Cover with a generous sprinkling of confectioners sugar. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and red chilli powder for some kick. Alternate toppings could be fresh cinnamon powder or even ground ginger powder.

Bake at around 250 degrees F for around 2 hours or until you see the apple dry up and turn a nice deep brown. Take the tray out of the oven, if your slices donot turn crisp from the caramelized sugar within five minutes and stay mushy, you know that your slices are too thick.

Also watch out for burning. After one hour in the oven, keep checking every 15 minutes.

Oil a tray or some parchment paper. As soon as you remove the tray from the oven, transfer the chips to the oiled parchment. If the sugar crystalises before you can transfer all the chips, just place the tray in the oven again for five minutes.

Store in an airtight container in the referigerator to keep the slices crisp.
