Apple chips are really easy to make, and are a sweet, healthy, crunchy snack addiction.  You don’t need to add anything at all – just bake a bunch of apple slices at 200F for an hour, then flip them and continue baking until mostly dry.  Brushing with a little optional maple syrup and cinnamon makes them extra special.

Dried Apple Chips
Ingredients
  • Apples (not optional)
  • Maple Syrup and Cinnamon (optional)
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Slice apples thinly crosswise, using a sharp knife or a mandolin slicer (about ⅛” thick).
  3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat sheet, and arrange slices in one layer, as many as you can fit on the cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 1 hour, flip slices over and bake for another hour or until all slices are just getting crispy and very lightly browned. Continue baking as noted above.
Notes
Optional: before baking, brush the first side of the apple slices lightly with maple syrup and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon. Bake for an hour, then flip and brush the other side with syrup and sprinkle again with cinnamon.

Photography of Grilled Peaches w/ Balsamic & Rosemary

Grilled Peaches with Rosemary & Balsamic Vinegar

We recently went on a Bucks County Food Tour and were introduced to quite a few local Pennsylvania farms we’d never visited before.  One memorable stop was Manoff Market Gardens where you would have to be completely crazy to leave without at least a dozen ripe, gorgeous peaches or without petting Hale, their Public Relations dog.

The next best thing to eating fresh ripe peaches, is grilling them.  There’s not much fuss about it.  It’s peaches.  On a grill.  This batch was finished off with chopped fresh rosemary, and a drizzle of Dark Chocolate, 12 Year aged Balsamic Vinegar.

Grilled Peaches with Rosemary and Balsamic Vinegar

  • Peaches
  • Fresh rosemary, chopped
  • Canola oil
  • Balsamic vinegar

Cut each peach in half and remove pits.  Brush the cut surfaces lightly with canola oil.  Oil the grates on the grill and pre-heat to medium high.  Place peach halves with their cut sides facing down and grill for 5 minutes.  Flip peaches over and grill for another 4 minutes.  Remove from grill and drizzle with aged balsamic vinegar.  Sprinkle with chopped rosemary and serve as a side dish to pork chops, or as a simple dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Oh my goodness, what beautiful pictures! While this recipe is so simple, it looks simply delicious! Again proving that less is more. Totally salivating right now! I would never have thought to pair the peaches and the rosemary, awesome idea!

Thank you! This is very easy and versatile. I saw some people try mint instead of the rosemary but we tend to like rosemary better for this, especially if used as a side dish with pork.

mint, that’s a great idea too. We’re having Pork for dinner tomorrow night, it’s such a shame that it’s the wrong season for peaches here, otherwise that TOTALLY would have made it to our table! :-(

These pictures have me craving grilled peaches! I’ve had them a few times before, although not with balsamic and rosemary, which I’ll have to try next time. When I’ve made them I’ve had a hard the getting the beautiful grill marks. What’s your trick?

Thanks for visiting! The grill marks require the grill to be medium-high and preheated well. We also brush or spray a little canola oil on the cut side of the peaches. I suggest canola oil because it doesn’t burn easily like olive oil does.

I love grilled peaches and yours look absolutely flawless! You’re a grilling champion! I have never tried grilled peaches with anything other than brown sugar on top and I adore balsamic vinegar and rosemary, so this recipe looks fantastic to me!

Thank you very much. This took some sacrificial peaches for testing but we found that a little brushing or spray of canola oil on the cut side helps a lot.

I originally saw this made with peaches but the apricots were looking better at the market. I find the color of apricots to be one of my favorites and they look great for photos.

Making this is simple, just cut up some apricots or peaches and put them in a small glass of Chianti with a little bit of cinnamon. I used jars that were for preserves. Let it set for an hour or so and the fruit will absorb the wine. Doing this with a white wine is good too and I enjoy this because I can play around with different kinds of fruit and wine combinations.
