Tips and Recipes 🍞
By: Henry Hunter
As the leaves turn to fiery shades and the air becomes crisp, it’s a sure sign that apple season is here. 🍂 Apples are not only a favorite for pies and snacking but also a fantastic addition to your homemade bread. At Baking Great Bread at Home, we’re excited to explore the delightful world of apple-infused bread, and we’re thrilled to share some delicious recipes and tips with you. Plus, we have an excellent partner in this endeavor – Brod & Taylor’s Sahara Dehydrator, the perfect companion for turning those fresh apples into flavorful dehydrated delights. 🍎✨
Why Dehydrated Apples in Bread?
Dehydrated apples add a burst of flavor and a hint of natural sweetness to your bread, making it perfect for fall. They also provide a delightful texture, offering a chewy contrast to the soft crumb of your bread. Here’s why you should consider using them:
1. Enhanced Flavor: Dehydrated apples concentrate their natural sugars and flavors. This means your bread will have that unmistakable apple taste in every bite. 🍏
2. Texture: They introduce a pleasing chewiness to your bread, creating a delightful contrast with the tender crumb. 😋
3. Extended Shelf Life: Dehydrated apples have a longer shelf life compared to fresh ones. This means you can enjoy that apple goodness in your bread all year round. 📆🍞
Getting Started with Dehydrating Apples
To incorporate dehydrated apples into your bread recipes, you’ll need a reliable dehydrator. We recommend Brød & Taylor’s Sahara Dehydrator for its precision and ease of use. Here’s how to get started:
1. Select Your Apples: Choose ripe, firm apples. Varieties like Granny Smith, Fuji, and Honeycrisp work wonderfully for dehydrating. 🍎🍏🍎
2. Preparation: Wash, peel, and core the apples. Slice them uniformly for even drying. Brød & Taylor’s Sahara Dehydrator has ample space for laying out your apple slices. 🍽️🔪
3. Dehydrating: Follow the Sahara Dehydrator’s instructions for apple dehydration. It offers precise temperature control, ensuring your apples dry perfectly without losing their flavors. 🌡️
4. Storage: Once your apples are dehydrated, store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. They’ll stay fresh for months, ready to use in your bread recipes. 📦🍏

Hi everyone, I wanted to share with you my unboxing of my new Sahara Dehydrator that just arrived from Brød and Taylor.
Now, I am an ambassador for them, but that won’t color what I’m about to tell you.
This is a versatile and powerful device that I can’t wait to put to work. I can now dehydrate my sourdough starter, fruits, vegetables, herbs, meats, and more. I can also fold it, and store it easily when I’m not using it. Mine has an elegant carrying case, exactly the kind of thing you would expect from Brød and Taylor.
I recorded a video of me putting it together for the first time, and I was pleasantly surprised by how simple and quick it was to assemble. You can watch it below and see for yourself.
As you know, I’m a big fan of Brød & Taylor products. They make high-quality and innovative tools for baking, cooking, and preserving food, and they frequently sponsor our challenges and giveaways. I’m honored to be an ambassador for them and to share my honest opinions with you.
If you have any questions about the Sahara Dehydrator, the Sourdough, Home, The Proofer and Slow Cooker, their Danish Whisk, or the most incredible knife sharpener I’ve ever seen or any of the other Brød and Taylor products I use, I will happily tell you what I know.
