Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating.

Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating. I think my first thought was, "What does that mean?" You ask your doctor and he says just avoid that food. It's just a skin test. They aren't entirely accurate.

I am going to attempt to give you ideas and recipes on how to avoid corn. It can be quite the challenge.

Sorry that my blog is evolving into a little bit of everything in life.

Fruit Leather and Apple Chips

I've been making apple chips and apple sauce. I have 9 trays for my Nesco Professional Dehydrator. I can dry about 7 apples at a time. It takes around 12 hours to dry apples about 1/4 inch thick. I use the medium blade on my mandolin. I have left over applesauce from last year. I found that I can make fruit leather with it. I only have 2 fruit leather trays. I start drying the apples after a couple hours the apples have shrunk enough that I can rearrange the trays to gain 2 empty trays. I put the fruit leather insert on them and 1 pint of apples sauce fits per tray. I let it dry over night and then have wonderful fruit leather and didn't waste any food!
