Begin by chopping the Granny Smith apples to 1/8 inch slices. Next, grate the ginger root very finely on top of the sliced Granny Smith apples. After grating the ginger root, finely mince the orange peel. Toss the Granny Smith apples, grated ginger root, and minced orange peel into a large mixing bow. Pour all of the remaining ingredients on top. Mix thoroughly, and dehydrate at 118°F (~12 hours). To test if done pull a piece out of the dehydrator, let sit for 5 minutes to cool down, and then try it out. If the end result is slightly crunchy, your recipe is dehydrated!
For rehydration pour the dehydrated apple cider mix into 15 or more cups of water. Bring the water to a simmer and leave for 5 minutes. Let cool slightly, strain, and serve.
Yields 5+ liters when rehydrated
