I was wondering if anyone knows how to make an apple sliver decoration. I have seen pictures of this type of decoration several times, but have never seen instructions for doing it.
I included one picture I found with an apple decoration.
I have seen it done with apples, but also with other fruit (like pears).
I know you must start with a very thinly-sliced piece of fruit. But, after that, I don't know what you do. It doesn't look candied and it doesn't look like it's just dried, either.
It makes such a nice decoration.
Does anyone know how to do this???
Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions!
Well, I may have found the way to do this.....I posted this on Yahoo! Answers as well, and got this response:
Preheat your oven to 200*F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Slice your apples (I like granny smiths for this) into rounds, as thin as humanly possible. No more than 1/8". If you have a mandolin or V slicer, this works great. Don't worry too much about seeds, either. Lay in rows on baking sheet, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, and bake for 2 and 1/2 hours, rotating once. Loosen with a spatula and then let them cool for 10 minutes before removing them. Will keep, airtight, in your cabinet for a week.
Sounds like it will work (although I really thought it was more than a dried apple).
But, if anyone else has a different idea, let me know!
that's about it! with or without the cinnamon. I also would put a bit of citric acid (lemon juice would work) to prevent over browning.
