    Have you found an apple that works well with the Microwave Chip Maker? I've tried Granny Smith, and they never "chipped up"...I know that apple chips are typically chewier, but these were REALLY chewy. Gonna try Honeycrisp, but does anyone else have experience to share?

    Also, do you peel the apples or not? Season with anything?

    No, but most dried apples are Galas

    Aaahhh...smart girl!

    So, after further microwaving both the Granny Smith and Honeycrisp apples in 30 sec intervals, they did eventually become somewhat chippy, but it took forever! I'll definitely give the Galas a try.

    LOL! I just know apples. We have loads of apple orchards around here. When we first moved here I did a bit of research on apples. Also, I'm pretty much the queen of pie - it's important I know about fruit.
