Reduction

Wow, 4.8 pounds of apples dries into a mere 8.9 ounces of dried apple slices. Anyone think I should put up a picture?

Takes a while though.

I always dry a couple cans worth of pineapple chunks at the same time, because if you dip the apple slices into pineapple juice, they don't turn brown. The pineapple itself takes even longer to dry, mainly because it hold a lot of moisture, but also because the high sugar content keeps that moisture in.
