In this episode of bite me, we are going to be making light crispy and infused Apple chips that you can make faster than you'd think. Welcome to bite me, the show but edibles where I help you take control of your high life. I'm your host Marge. And I just want to take a second to say thank you for being here, this is your first time, welcome. I think you'll get some value of their show on your edibles journey. If you've been joining us for a while. I really appreciate you taking the time out of your busy day to have a listen. It really means a lot. If it wasn't for you guys listening out there, I'd be sitting here doing this for nothing, I suppose, and while that's a pretty sad thought so anyway I just want to say thank you. Before we get into the to the main part of the show when we talk about the apple chips I did just want to update you all a little bit on the dynavap review that I left. I've had some chances to play around with a more since I uploaded and recorded recorded that episode. And I want to mention a couple things. One is that I had mentioned in that episode that there was a bit of a learning curve with using this little device, and after having a bit more time to play around with it and watching a few more videos online because there are lots of them there's whole Reddit forums and everything you can imagine about this little vape. I did I have managed to get a little bit more out of the vape than I had when I initially recorded that episode, and I have been man, I have been able to get some pretty big clouds from this tiny little vape. And so while the chamber is pretty small. I have since realized that the small size of the chamber doesn't necessarily mean that you're not getting a lot from your weed out of it. Hopefully this is making a lot of this is making sense. But one night I was playing around with it and I took a big hit and got some pretty big clouds from it, and. Wow. That really tuned me up and I was pretty impressed because again like I said the chamber is pretty small. But you can reuse it several times before you have to change the contents of the chamber or the bowl. And so I just want to be clear that while there is a bit of a learning curve that small chamber isn't as small as you'd think, and has the definitive capacity to get your pretty fucked up. So I'm still in love with this little this little vape i think is fantastic worth a look. I'll link to it in the show notes if you want to hear that episode if you missed that particular one you want to check it out for yourself. I do still think that you're going to have to save up quite a while before you get enough vape cannabis in order to use it for an infusion. But at the end of the day, what doesn't matter, and you're not wasting it you're getting more value out of it. And it's something you'd probably otherwise throw away so I think the next thing would be trying without already beat cannabis is probably just making some tea. See if I can make some tea from that so I can maximize the usage of the cannabis that I use with that little device. So anyway just wanted to update you guys on the this little thing I'm still in love with it I think it's fantastic. And I'm still not smoking as much as I am using edibles Of course, but it has been pretty fun to play around with this little this little device. Also, I just want to mention too that I think Chris is hanging up his hat as far as enjoying edibles for the next little bit I think he's been finding that perhaps he's been overdoing it a little bit, and as somebody who sometimes has a tendency to overdo things not always and not a lot of stuff. He's just decided he's gonna back off for a little bit, which I thought was interesting because he also recently said that if I made more of that medicated mac and cheese. He'd be all over that. So my next experiment to try you guys and I will keep you updated on this is what will happen if I make a medicated mac and cheese. And this is going to be one of the easiest infused meals or dishes that I've made if we can even call it that because when I made it form before it was literally a box of Kraft Dinner, that I stirred some infused butter or coconut oil and to me just everything was made the exact same way. That was just the slight little twist that I made and Chris love that stuff. So while he says that he's going to be hanging up as hard. Let's see what happens if I leave a little carrot out for the rabbit. Will he take the bait folks. Time will tell. Time will tell. But I'll let you know. He hasn't feeling too well lately so that medicated mac and cheese is probably going to have to wait, but that's okay. It will be fun little experiment to try. I think maybe he was overdoing it a little bit on some of the oils are brought home to the dispensary recently, which can be pretty easy to do sometimes, but in any case let's get on to the Apple chip Shall we
do you smell that I can barely smell it because my sinuses have been clogged with allergies. Recently they are terrible but when I do get catch a whiff of that fresh air I can smell fall in the air, and with fall comes, apples, and I love getting apples, this time of year because they're juicy and crisp and delicious. And the thing that gave me the idea about making Apple chips before is that, or the thing that gave me the idea about making Apple chips was buying a Costco sized bag of Apple chips one time from the grocery store or from the thing that got me thinking about making Apple chips was buying a Costco sized bag of them. Recently, and they were really good and you look on the bag and the ingredients are pretty much apples and apples are very easy item to dehydrate. So with all What if you could infuse them. And of course you can infuse pretty much anything so I set straightaway to trying to make the best damn Apple chip, I possibly could that will get you high. Well folks, this was no easy task. It was no easy task at all. And well, generally speaking, this is a very minimal ingredient type of recipe. It did take me a few tries to get it just rate. Actually, full disclosure, it took me three tries. The first try it, they just weren't that great they weren't particularly sweet Emily apples or using was pretty sweet. The second try I pretty well burned them. They were just way too crisp and I was sitting in bed one night, eating like Bert, Apple chips and it really wasn't that good I did end up tossing out a few of them. In the end, after I made the third batch, which turned out, just right. And that's the version I'm going to be sharing with you today because I just did wing this pretty much in an effort to make them in my oven to. Because yes, I do have a food dehydrator and it would probably be easier just to set them in that and then forget it. But honestly, I know most of you probably don't have one of those, and I was pretty well doing like one or two apples at a time and it seemed like a lot of work to get a whole food dehydrator just to dehydrate one apple or two apples, so I just skipped it, but I figure it'd be easier for everybody involved if I just shared with you how it worked out in my oven, because I'm sure most of you have one of those. And what you're going to need. If you can, is your wall obviously you're gonna need your apples, you're going to want some cinnamon, a little bit of sugar and your infused olive oil. I use olive oil you could probably also use coconut oil for this one. Not sure about her workout too great for this one, if you do use your coconut oil, this is one scenario where you may want to melt it so it's really liquidy. And do that before you start the one other trick I would recommend for this. If you have it. I have a mandolin slicer. I've had it my cupboard for a long time I pull it out when I'm wanting to make certain vegetables and it's really important that they are a uniform size. And this thing will slice, very precisely, it's very sharp, and it makes the job pretty easy so I use the mandolin slicer so I could get nice thin slices of the apple. And that worked out quite well if you don't have one just try and slice them is thinly as you can with your knife and try and get them all the uniform size if you can. If you don't, it's not a huge deal. But you will notice some variations some of your chips might not be as, as crispy as some of the other ones just because of variances in the thickness, but at the end of the day, who really cares if you have a mandolin slicer great. I can link to one in the show notes you know what they look like they are pretty handy kitchen tool but if you don't have one obviously it's something you can make do without. You're going to slice your apples really thin, you're going to preheat your oven to 220 or 225 in and around that neighborhood. I tried them at first at 255. It was too hot, or maybe I needed to reduce the time but I think the lower temperature is better. And you're going to line sheet with parchment paper was so that just makes for a much easier cleanup. When you're done, and then you're going to put your apples slices in a bowl, and I used for the last one I probably ended up using two tablespoons of olive oil for the one apple.
And then I use like a teaspoon of cinnamon and almost a teaspoon of sugar, just to add a little something because I found the first batch, like I said, it didn't turn out very sweet, even though the apples themselves are sweet and usually don't need anything extra. I do find the cinnamon is really nice so just adding that little teaspoon of sugar can help a little bit. If you don't want to add it, just leave it out, no big deal but apples and cinnamon are obviously classic pairing. You can of course leave that out as well. So you sprinkle that on and you're going to mix it thoroughly. This is the part that's probably going to take you the longest because you want to make sure that the apples are all coated and because of the nature of the apple, they're going to be moist and they're going to want to stick together. So you are going to want to move them around. As you place them on the parchment paper on your on your pan. You just want to make sure they all have a little bit of space, if you're only doing one or two apples at a time that's not a big deal if you're doing more apples, you may want to get out more than one pan so you have lots of space you don't want to crowd them too much. And then at the end of the bowl or the bottom of the bowl, you may notice that there's quite a bit of this. Cinnamon liquid, which is your oil, that's the goodness in there folks don't leave too much without in the bowl if even if you have to means you have to get another apple and cut some more slices off of it, do it because that's your infused oil and you don't want to leave that in the bowl you want that on your Apple so you can eat it and you can get a highlighter. That's the whole point. So, mop up the rest of that stuff with some of the apples that look like they didn't get enough on them or cut a few extra slices if you need to do that just make sure you don't waste it. Then you're going to put it in the oven for about an hour. And then after the hour, you're going to take the apples, flip them over. Flip over each Apple put it back in the oven and then I would suggest putting them back in the oven for about 45 minutes. That way you can check on them to make sure they're not getting too crispy, because what I do know is that ovens do vary, my oven at 224, an hour each side was just right I found, but a lot of ovens can vary, and you don't trust me, they, they turn pretty girl from the more on the berm side do you think oh, it'd be nice caramelized or something but now it doesn't work out like that. So you just want to make sure you have that extra 15 minutes they might be fine right there if you're happy with the consistency in the texture, then lead them out or put them on for a little bit longer as needed, but just just keep an eye on them. You're going to let them cool and then you can put them in an airtight container and store them for however long you need to probably not long. I ended up eating mine The following night. And it was a really nice snack. After dinner, you know you had the nice crunch, there was a low sugar snack I did add a little bit of added sugar to it but it wasn't, it was a pretty marginal amount. And I found that the potency of my olive oil and you're going to want to adjust your recipe based on the potency of your own oil. If you're unsure always err on the side of caution, of course. But I found it quite nice. They weren't super strong, like some of my cookies are that I've made but they did provide a very nice, relaxing buzz, and I didn't taste the weed at all, either. I, you know, he thought it might the olive oil that I'm using is very green from the weed, but it was perfect, they were, they were fantastic and so again this is a recipe that while it takes a bit of time in the oven. Most of the time for this one is hands off, you're slicing the apples sprinkling a few things on it, and then putting it on the pan, flipping them over and then taking them out the bulk of the time is just sitting in the oven when you can be doing other things. I don't know, other thing anything else, but as long as you're not going too far. This is a great recipe just to throw in the oven makes your house smell nice as well because toasting apples or, you know, dehydrating apples and cinnamon will make your house smell pretty good too. So I really think you'll enjoy this recipe if you give it a shot and if you do let me know how it turns out, send me pictures, do whatever I could share them if you so choose on my Instagram or in a newsletter or whatever what whatever if you're proud of something you've made, I would love to see it.

And I think that's it for this week guys this is a bit of a shorter rest episode but it was a shorter recipe too. And I'm hoping that if you've had a chance to go out, apple picking or do any of those lovely things picking up apples from the market or whatever. Then, I hope you've picked up a few extra because I've got another apple related recipe for next week as well, which I'm kind of excited about that one was also fun to make. And I think that's it for now. I hope you guys are making some delicious things you're staying warm, you're treating your allergies are staying safe. And until next week, my friends, stay high.
