Homemade Cinnamon Apple Chips - October Blog Party!

Okay everyone so this will be my FIRST post for our October blog party hosted by The Domestic Witch. :) Even though it is a day early, I'm leaving this post up until the first! Hope that doesn't disqualify me. Lol!

The Apple is the earliest cultivated tree known to man. The apple is used in love spells, divinations, and healing.

Magickal aspects: Fertility, peace, love, healing magic, garden spells and immortality.
Associated Greek God/Goddess: Hera, Zeus, Melanion
Planetary Ruler for Apple Trees: Venus, Libra and Taurus

Try this comforting and healthy snack to welcome Autumn. They are wonderful!

2 cups unsweetened apple juice
1 cinnamon stick
2 red delicious apples

Preparation Directions:~ In a large saucepan, combine apple juice and cinnamon stick; bring to a low boil.~ Meanwhile, prepare apples. Cut top and bottom off apples, then cut crosswise into 1/8-inch thick even slices. Drop slices into boiling juice and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until slices are lightly golden.~ Preheat oven to 250 degrees. With slotted spoon remove apples slices form juice and pat dry. Arrange slices on wire racks in single layer. Place racks on middle shelf in oven and bake 30 to 40 minutes or until slices are lightly browned and almost dry to the touch. Let chips cool completely on racks.~ Store in airtight container.

I promise they're not poisonous!

Ever notice the five-pointed star in the core of an apple when you slice it? :)

The cauldron was boiling tonight!

The lighting in the kitchen somehow gave off an eerie orange glow...okay or maybe I had my settings wrong on the camera. Lol!

Welcome Autumn! It was certainly Autumn here today. Cold, windy and rainy. Burrrrr!
