These delicious apple crisps are a great snack to have on standby for hungry children (or adults). Making your own is easy – your Aga range cooker does the work – and they are much cheaper than similar shop-bought snacks.
Wash and dry the apples. No need to peel. Slice very thinly across the apple – slices should be approximately 3mm thick. Slice through the core when you reach the centre and push out the pips. As you work, place the circular slices into a bowl of water with a good squeeze of lemon juice to prevent the going brown.
Pat the slices dry on kitchen paper and lay out on the grill shelf and sit within a roasting tin lined with a silicone baking sheet. Dust with a little cinnamon, if liked. Slide the roasting tin in the simmering oven and bake for 6-7 hours until crisp.
Aga range cooker tips:
- Cooking time will depend on the size and variety of your apples. Check after 5 hours but they may need up to 8 hours.
- If you have a warming oven, put the apples in here overnight to dry out.
- Store the apple crisps in an airtight container.
