Great for snacking and baking. Made from fresh sweet apples. Naturally fat-free. From stone age cultivation to Greek mythology, the apple has been a symbol of love, immortality and knowledge. Today the tradition continues with tales of Johnny Appleseed spreading the cultivation of apples in early America, or common reminders of being the apple of someone's eye! We work hard to live up to these same legends. We begin while the apples are still on the trees and wait until they are fully grown, ripe and sweet. We cut the rings only from the heart of the apples, then see that each apple slice is dried to just the right balance of sweetness, moistness and tenderness.
