How much apples needed to make 1 pound of dried apples

Ever wander how much apples you need to make 1 pound of dried apples? So did I so I decided to calculate when I dried my apples.

Here are the findings.

I started with 12 apples equaling 4 lb and 2 1/4 oz.

After pealing a coring that subtracted 1 lb and 1/4 oz.

9 hours later after dehydrating I had 8 oz of dried apples.

another words the water that was dehydrated equal to about 2 lb and 10oz.

You would need about 10lb of apples in order to make 1 lb of dried apples.
