I was surprised that the peel was still on these apple chunks. In the photo just one piece seems to have a peel on it. This is an issue because the peel was like leather. It never rehydrated enough to be pleasant enough to eat. I had to boil the chunks. Even so...the peels were still rubbery and unappealing. I finally put the fruit through a sieve and got something I could make a tart with. All in all...way too much trouble for what I got out of it. In an emergency situation, I would not call these a reliable resource. The tart tasted pretty good, when it was finally done, however.

I make my own "apple pie" oatmeal mix using these diced FD apples. It beats the pants off of anything that can be purchased in the store! The apples rehydrate really well and taste great. Here's the recipe I came up with for apple pie oatmeal:
APPLE PIE OATMEAL
6 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 Tbsp. powdered butter (optional)
2 cups North Bay Trading FD apple dices
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1/2 tsp. Chinese Five Spice powder (optional)
1 cup powdered milk
Mix all ingredients together well and store in an airtight container.
To serve: In a bowl, mix 1/3 cup oatmeal with 2/3 cup water (1:2 ratio for larger amounts). Microwave 4 minutes (900 watt). Stir and allow to stand for a few minutes until it is cool enough to eat. Enjoy!

These apples are fantastic. My nephew eats very few items, one of them being freeze dried apples. When the brand he ate was discontinued, I set out on a mission to find them.
I located them here and am pleased to say he loves them as much as his previous brand.
My husband and I enjoy them as well, either dry out of the bag, or rehydrated with a little cinnamon atop of waffles. Yum!
We will continue to look out for the next sale to stock up on more.

I put some cinnamon and water in a small bowl, added some of the diced FD apples, sugar is optional, then heated this up in the microwave. Tasted fresher and better than fresh made apple pie, and was a whole lot lower in calories! Or, sprinkle about a half cup of diced FD apples on the batter of the Bisqick coffeecake before you put on the streusel topping, then bake. Delicious!

Great flavor, naturally sweet and tart at the same time. Had this in my morning oatmeal with nuts and freeze dried cranberries. Awesome! Reconstituted very well, great flavors and held shape well. Two thumbs up for sure!

Nice sweet natural flavor. I reconstituted these freeze dried apples and mixed with cinnamon, nutmeg, and a little sugar yum!!! I thought I was eating homemade apple pie.

These freeze dried apples are great to snack on and the kids love them also. I pack a bag in with their lunch for school. Great healthy snack!

Added these apples just out of the bag to mincemeat pie, and the pie came out delicious, nice and firm, not soupy. Sprinkled freeze dried apples on cinnamon buns, before rolling up the dough, and the buns were fantastic! Great in hot cereal, too. I'm ordering more!

Easy to Prepare
- Use dry as a healthy snack, as an addition to trail mixes, and as a crunchy topping for cereals and desserts.
- For most other applications, hydrate by soaking for 5 minutes in a generous amount of cold or hot water (hot water works slightly better). Then drain.
Yield — 1 oz equals about 1 cup dry with less than 4% moisture content.
Rehydration Ratio — 1 lb of freeze dried apples, once rehydrated, equals approximately 10 lbs of fresh prepared diced apples.
Storage — Best if used within 24 months of purchase. Store tightly sealed while minimizing exposure to high humidity and heat.
