Combine the goodness of dehydrated apples with brown sugar, butter and vanilla to create a crunchy and delicious treat for friends and family.
Preheat oven to 300°. In a microwave safe bowl, add the brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Microwave for 2 ½ minutes until the sugar is melted and corn syrup is bubbly. Stir contents to a thick consistency. Stir in vanilla, salt and baking soda. Microwave for 20 seconds or until mixture begins to foam. In a large bowl, add the syrup mixture to the apple pieces and mix by hand until all apple pieces are evenly coated. Dump the mixture onto a parchment lined cookie sheet; spread it out to an even thickness. Bake uncovered for up to 20 minutes. Then reduce temperature to 225° and bake for up to 35 more minutes. Remove cookie sheet from the oven and transfer the apple cluster and parchment onto a cooling rack. Allow 30 minutes to cool; then break up the apple cluster mass into smaller bite sized pieces.
Apple Pieces work well in bakery items including breads, cake, muffins and pancake mixes, nutrition and granola bars, and dry mixes; fruit preparations; snack and trail mixes; confectionery.
