Preheat oven to 400°F (200° C).
Lay a large, clean dish towel on countertop. Have a second towel handy.
Pour apple juice into large pot or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil.
While juice heats, prepare apples by washing, coring and halving. Leave peel on. Slice into 1/8 inch thick or thinner slices and cut in half again.
Transfer apples to boiling juice for about 3 minutes. Remove from juice with a slotted spoon or sieve. (Juice can be reserved, cooled and drank later.)
Place apples in a single layer on clean towel. Place second towel on top and pat dry by pressing down firmly.
Transfer apples to a cooling rack placed on top of a large baking sheet. Prevent apples from touching each other.
Place apples in the preheated oven. After about 10 minutes of baking, rotate the pan for an additional 5-10 minutes, watching to ensure no burning. Turn off heat.
Remove pan from the oven. Carefully flip each apple slice. Return pan to oven and allow to sit for at least one hour. Store cooled apples in sealed plastic container or freeze, although these tasty snacks get eaten pretty quickly.
