Our daughter, Miss Scarlett , lives in NY. Because of the distance, she is mountain-apple deprived. They are too perishable to ship. I decided that I would dehydrate this batch and send them to her.
I began by making a simple syrup, which is just one part sugar to one part water. I like to dip fruits into a simple syrup before I dehydrate them, because it adds a touch of sweetness and keeps the colors looking nice. Anyway, to make the simple syrup, bring the sugar and water to a boil and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Next, I sliced the mountain apples into thin rings.
