  • 3 medium sized eating apples
  • 3 Tablespoons chai spiced teabags or 3 chai tea.
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon quill or 1 ground cinnamon


  • Grind the tea and the cinnamon quill to a fine powder in a coffee grinder or a mortar & pestle.
  • Pass the powder through a fine sieve to remove any coarse material.
  • Slice the apples horizontally into 6mm (1/4") slices using a knife, mandoline or apple gadget.
  • Sprinkle the chai spice over the apple slices. I used a fine sieve to get an even coating over the slices.

To dry in the dehydrator

  • Lay the slices on dehydrator trays, ensuring that the slices do not overlap.
  • Dry until crisp. The time taken will depend on your machine.
  • Store in an airtight container.

Oven-drying Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 90C.
  • Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Divide the spiced apple slices between the baking sheets. Do not allow the slices to overlap.
  • Bake for 1 hour. Flip the apple slices over.
  • Bake for 1 hour. Flip again.
  • Bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  • Store in an airtight container.
