Apple Crisps

Autumn is my favourite time of year food-wise. I love being able to choose local produce, and British apples are the best! This is a nice way of using some of the less pretty but still delicious apples. The crisps will keep for weeks in an air-tight glass, but I doubt you’ll be able to…
