American Snack I Miss Right Now: Apple Chips

Sometimes I think this blog is dominated by food posts - specifically, unhealthy food posts. So, apple chips are an improvement, but once they've been dipped in cinnamon and sugar and other preservatives ... maybe not so much.

I grew up eating banana and apple chips as a snack or lunch box treat. Now that it's fall and the leaves are turning, I really, really miss Seneca's apple chips, which were the kind my mom used to buy. I think it's because I grew up in Washington state, where apples are abundant, and went to college in preppy Massachusetts, where our fall semesters consisted of trips to Atkins Farm for fresh apple pie, cider donuts (don't even get me started on those), and sweet, hot cups of apple cider.

I've found this recipe for making dried apple chips, which I'm definitely tempted to try this weekend. What are some of your favorite fall snacks?

  1. I found some apple chips at the Tesco Metro on Tooley ST (SE1) -- I'm sure you can find them in other store. I think they were Tesco brand.

  2. No way! Thanks for the tip - I'll have to check it out.

  3. Next time i'm at Atkins i fully intend on toasting some cider to you! There's really nothing like it :) Best of luck with making the apple chips!
