[cooking] Dehydrated apples

One of our wild apple trees is fully loaded with large apples. I went out to pick some this weekend:

Wild apples picked from the front yard. To dehydrate. 🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎

Maybe not the prettiest but my plan was to peel and dehydrate them. I got a new Spiralizer to make quick work of it:

This product works so well, it makes me angry. Think of all the apples I peeled by hand. All the slicing I did by hand. All the apples. All the pies. All the years. This thing is amazing- pop on an apple and turn a crank- it peels and slices and cores. It's wonderful to have all the slices uniform thickness for dehydrating. I just cut the cored apple spiral in half and lay all the slices on the trays. 8 or so hours later:

Dehydrated apples. Will use softer ones soon and store the driest ones.

What to do with all the dehydrated apples? I think we'll have them for snacking (they're more like apple jerky than apple chips) and then King Arthur Flour just posted a recipe for Appalachian Stack Cake
