Our homemade Apple Schnitz (dried apples) is made from fresh apples, air-dried here at our market, with no additives or preservatives whatsoever. Schnitz is a great tasting, chewy, all-natural snack, and is a natural for lots of dried apple dish and dessert favorites
and certainly that old Pennsylvania Dutch favorite - Schnitz and Knepp
! For people who enjoy a great tasting, chewy, all-natural fruit snack,
schnitz is wonderful alone or (especially!) with other dried fruits (try this recipe)
. We dry two wonderful flavors of apple schnitz:
- (Best Seller) Sweet Apple Schnitz, made from fresh, naturally sweet apples slices, usually slices of the venerable Rome Beauty apple); and,
- (Best tasting according to most Kauffmans) Tart Apple Schnitz, made from fresh, more tart-tasting apple slices, usually from Idared or Granny Smith apples.
By the way, the word schnitz
is a German word that means "piece" or "slice". Fitting, isn't it?
