Apple wafers
« on: October 12, 2010, 09:00:45 AM »
Ingredients:

Apples

Instructions:

Slice 1/8 inch slices from opposite sides of apples, producing circular wafers.

Notes:  Hey, some people wanted simple recipes, right?  Seriously, I figured I'd post this after my 2 year old said "cookies!" when her mother made them for her.  It might help paleo children keep from feeling left out.

I'd take this one step further:

Place on a dehydrator and sprinkle with cinnamon

Or heat up a cast iron skillet, melt your favorite fat into skillet, add apples, sprinkle with cinnamon and or nutmeg.  Fry quickly and serve hot.

Yeah, if I was going to take extra trouble, I'd probably fry them in tallow or something, then maybe sprinkle some cocoa powder on them.  Maybe I'll try that out and modify the recipe.

Yum, then we have apple and cocoa "cookies".

Just tried the frying.  A slice fried in tallow, still hot, was delicious!  However, even 30 seconds on a side was enough to make the slice soggy, as was 1 minute per side for a 1/4 inch slice.  If I remember tomorrow, I'll try 30 seconds per side on 1/4 inch slices.

Also, I'm not sure cinnamon or cocoa is really necessary.  Again, I'll try various combinations tomorrow.  Also, I might try coconut oil, as I'm not sure everyone will like the mild beefy undertones on a sweet snack.

I'm also trying refrigerating them after cooking, so they won't be quite as messy.  They're not exactly finger food straight out of the frying pan.

Bacon fat!!!!

High temp, short duration. Thick pieces work better than slices.

Soggy?  Yes, probably to thickly sliced then.  I would think the natural sugar in the fruit would make it sweet enough, but sometimes a over dose of cocoa or cinnamon makes a blue day sunny.  I would also think that the apples in cinnamon would be a very nice side dish for a bacon and eggs breakfast.  Hmm, that does sound good!  :D

It's plenty sweet.  The cocoa and cinnamon aren't sweet, anyway; they don't have any sugar in them.

Oh no, I know, cinnamon is more of a sweet/warm memory for me then it is a true flavor.

Cinnamon also has insulin controlling properties. If you're consuming a lot of these, maybe it'll keep the spike down a bit
