How To Use Dehydrated Apples

This is the first in a new series focusing on how to use common food storage ingredients.  If you have something that you would like to know more about please let me know. 
Everything You Need to Know about Dehydrated Apples
 There are two main types of dehydrated apples, chips and slices.  They are both good and I personally store both.  I find that they can be used almost interchangeably.  The main differences are the color (apple slices are darker and have the peal attached) and the flavor (chips are sweet and slices are a little tart)
 
The Specs:
Apple Chips  –thin  like  potato  chips,  thinly  slices  no  peel,  great  for  tarts.  Apple chips have a sweet apple taste and are best used for baking, but they do make a nice snack.

Apple Slices  –  organic,  dehydrated  slices  with  peel  (which means more  fiber), the slices are thicker than the apple chips.  When re-hydrated they are brown.  Best used for snacking but can be used for baking.  Apple slices are made from Granny Smith Apples and are a little bit tart.
