Apple Fritters Recipe for My Little Apple Lover

I can’t wait to make these apple fritters for my grandson! After all, he’s loved apples ever since he was 20 months old and discovered that snacks grow on trees. Indeed, our daughter didn’t hesitate to take him to An Orchard Setting/Speaker Lone Oak Orchard in Melvin, Michigan, for a photo session with Laura Kathryn Photography.

Elijah obviously thinks an apple orchard is the perfect destination: playground, snack center and more! Without a doubt, this Heart Gifts ornament by Teresa Thibault captures just how I feel about my little apple lover:

DIY Apple Garland and Ornaments

Garland of dried apple slices, brown wooden beads and half-apple glass ornaments

We made this DIY dried apple garland several years ago to feature in a newsletter. It’s simple to make and showcases our half-apple ornaments beautifully. By all means, remember to dry some extra apple slices for snacking!

If you prefer to begin with a wooden bead garland, you can. Bronner’s has one on order that should arrive in the next couple of months (SKU # 1204588). Simply slide your apple slices over and between the beads, and tie your half-apple glass ornaments to the garland with twine.

How to Dry Apple Slices

  1. To begin, preheat your oven to 200-225 degrees F.
  2. Next, cover sheet pans with parchment paper.
  3. Then, select one large apple for every 6 to 8 inches of garland. Wash and dry your apples.
  4. Cut 1/4-inch slices horizontally to get star-shaped centers in your apple slices.
  5. (Optional) Dip the slices in lemon juice or soak them for 10 minutes in a bath of 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to 1 cup of water to discourage browning. Multiply the bath to accommodate all your apple slices.
  6. Finally, place the apple slices (not touching) on your parchment-lined sheet pans and put them in the oven for one hour. Turn them over and dry them for another hour. Keep and eye on your apple slices. You may not need a full two hours. Don’t let the apple slices dry to a crisp or they may crack and break when you’re stringing them onto the garland.
  7. Let the slices cool completely.

How to String Your Garland

  • Twine the desired length of your garland plus one extra foot on each end.
  • Dried apple slices (slices from one large apple for every 6 to 8 inches of garland)
  • Half-inch diameter finished or unfinished wooden beads (8 to 10 beads for every 6 to 8 inches of garland)
  • One half-apple ornament for every 8 inches of garland
  • First, knot the twine one foot in from one of the ends.
  • Second, alternately string your dried apple slices, beads and half-apple glass ornaments onto the twine, beginning with one or two beads.
  • Last, when you have just over 1 foot of twine left, string one or two beads and knot the twine.
