Fall in Central New York has two kinds of weather. Glorious, sunny days that fill your heart with joy and make you want to be outside. And gray, rainy days that make you happy to stay inside. There’s an app for both kinds of weather, or rather an apple. Thanks to Alice G Patterson Photography, and of course, lovely Franny for these beautiful photos.
On a sunny day, you can’t wait to go outside. A favorite destination is a trip to the local orchard to pick some delicious apples.
Both Alice’s and my dogs love apples, but we typically only give them one slice at a time.
Now the rainy days, well, those are perfect for making apple pies, apple strudel, and one of my dogs’ favorite treats — dehydrated apple chips.
They really couldn’t be simpler to make. Since I don’t have a dehydrator, I made ours in the oven following the directions from My Brown Newfies. Recently I read that one kind of cinnamon is good for dogs, but another one might not be. I wasn’t sure what kind I had, so I omitted it.
When it comes to serving up the apple chips, you can either use them as a treat or a food topper.
Franny lucked out and got it both ways, just one of the perks of being a model.
Dehydrated apple chips will keep a long time in an airtight container. But unless you make a ton, you don’t have to worry about the chips going bad.
