Cook's Note: Psyllium husk
powder is a dietary supplement that can be found online or in health food stores.
Begin by tossing the apple rings in a bowl with fresh ginger juice, 2 tablespoons of the fresh lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
. Place the coated apples in a dehydrator overnight, on a low setting, until mostly dry. Remove from the dehydrator and set the dried apples to soak in the fresh apple juice for a few hours.
To a blender
, add the coarsely chopped apples, the remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice
, the vanilla, gingerroot
and the remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Blend on high until a smooth applesauce
consistency is achieved. Then add the dates and psyllium husk powder and continue blending.
and squeeze out the remaining apple juice from the rehydrated apple rings, and toss those apples together with the applesauce mixture. Spoon this mixture evenly into the Pie Crust, and set in the fridge to chill for a few hours. Just before serving, sprinkle with Pie Topping.
Cook's Note: The dehydrating and rehydrating process gives the apples a texture similar to that of baked apples, but the process preserves the nutritional quality.
