Well, it’s that time of the year again…..lots and lots of zucchini in the garden. I can only stir fry so much zucchini. I can only make so many fruit snacks with zucchini.
I must admit, I like to snack a lot during the day. I thought I would try drying some in my dehydrator and see if I like snacking on those. I had some onion dip left from a family get together. Yep, they taste great plain or dipped in onion dip!
I like to use my FoodSaver to seal a few jars and remove the excess air. They are an easy on the go snack with or without dip.
Here is how I made them:
|Wash the zucchini, cut off the ends and any bruised spots. I like to use young tender zucchini without the seeds. I do not peel the zucchini. Use a mandolin slicer if possible to slice the zucchini in evenly sliced 1/8 inch pieces. Spread the slices on the dehydrator racks so they do not touch each other. Set your dehydrator at 125 degrees. Please check your dehydrator book for temperature and times that are applicable to your dehydrator. This batch took about 4 hours. The time to dehydrate depends on the humidity of the room. I like to stop the drying when it is pliable but not super brittle and crumbly.|
