Sorry for the confusion about the oven racks. In this recipe, we recommend drying two trays of apples at a time, so you will want to position one oven rack in the upper third of your oven and another rack in the lower third. When drying the apples, one tray should be on the upper rack and the other on the lower rack. Typically, the apples on the bottom of the oven will dry a little faster, but you could change pan positions about halfway through drying. Thank you for your question and we hope you try the recipe.

I'm confused about the oven rack instructions. Does it mean position a rack in middle of oven or one rack in the upper area and one in the lower area. If so, which rack do you place the apple pan on? Can someone please clarify?
