We always use limbertwig apples

Red delicious, golden delicious make a sweet dried apple, Granny Smith or horse apples (picked after frost) makes a very good but tart dried apple, best all around for drying and multiple use are Rome, Winesap, Fugi, magna bonum, limber twig, and if you can find them, rusty coats.

In any event you will need to dip in abscorbic acid or in lemon juice before drying or they will turn dark.

If you want recipes then let me know on the recipe section and I will provide some I use and like.

What kind of apples do all you great Wilkes County cooks " dry " to make fried apple pies out of? I know some apples lose their taste after cooking, but which kind is best and what time of the year are they available? Thanks!
