90g caster sugar
11/2 tsp lemon juice
2 Golden Delicious apples
1. Preheat the oven to 110°C/fan90°C/gas 1/4. Line 2 large baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
2. Put the sugar, lemon juice and 90ml water in a pan over a low heat. Stir to dissolve. Bring to the boil and cook for 3-4 minutes until just syrupy. Set aside.
3. Slice the apple finely, discarding the ends. Dip in the syrup with tongs, let the excess drip off and put on the trays in 1 layer. Repeat with a second apple. Bake for 4 hours, turning halfway, until dried. Transfer to a rack to cool and crisp.
