Apple Chips or Crisps ?

Apple crisps and apple chips are both popular snacks made from apples, but they have distinct differences in terms of preparation, texture, and taste:

  1. Preparation:

    • Apple Crisps: Apple crisps are typically made by thinly slicing apples and baking them at a low temperature until they are dehydrated and crispy. Some recipes may involve adding sugar or spices for flavour before baking. At Nim’s we air dry whole apple which are sliced. We do not add any preservatives or sugar or salt!
    • Apple Chips: Apple chips are also made by thinly slicing apples, but they are usually baked or fried at a higher temperature, resulting in a crispier texture compared to apple crisps. They may or may not have added sugar or spices.
  2. Texture:

    • Apple Crisps: Apple crisps have a light and crispy texture, similar to that of potato chips or crackers. They are somewhat airy and delicate. Nim’s apple crisps are famous for its texture!
    • Apple Chips: Apple chips have a firmer and more substantial crunch compared to apple crisps. They can be quite hard and dense.
  3. Taste:

    • Apple Crisps: Apple crisps often have a slightly sweet and sometimes tart flavour due to the natural sugars in the apples. Additional flavourings, like cinnamon or other spices, may be added for a more enhanced taste. Our Apple crisps do not contain any additives. Ours is having natural flavour!
    • Apple Chips: Apple chips also have a sweet taste, especially if sugar or sweeteners are added during the preparation. The flavor can range from natural sweetness to more intense sweetness depending on the recipe.
  4. Cooking Method:

    • Apple Crisps: Apple crisps are usually baked at a lower temperature for a longer period to slowly dehydrate the apple slices, resulting in a crispy texture. We do not bake here. We air dry using our machines!
    • Apple Chips: Apple chips are often baked or fried at a higher temperature, which gives them a quicker, crisper finish.

In summary, the main differences between apple crisps and apple chips lie in the cooking method, resulting texture, and the level of sweetness or flavor enhancement. Apple crisps are typically lighter and crispier, while apple chips have a firmer crunch and can be sweeter, depending on the recipe.
