Or you can drop a few into a teapot along with a hand­ful of spices, such as cin­na­mon, fresh gin­ger and car­damom, to make a gor­geous ti­sane; cover with boil­ing wa­ter, in­fuse for 5 mins, then pour. A pinch of sea salt 3–4 ap­ples, skin on, rinsed, cored and thinly sliced

1 Fill a large bowl with 500ml wa­ter and a pinch of sea salt. Tip in the ap­ple rings.

2 Pat the ap­ple rings dry, then thread the rings onto a clean wooden stick or a piece of string, or ar­range on a wire rack you can set in the oven.

3 Dry at room tem­per­a­ture for 4–5 days. Or ar­range on a wire rack or lined bak­ing tray and dry in an oven pre­heated to 100C/Fan 80C/200F for 1 hr or un­til fully dried. Turn once or twice to dry evenly and pre­vent stick­ing.
