We have a small 4 x 40 plot at a community garden. Due to limited space we were restricted as to how much we could plant . . . among other things we decided to plant only two zucchini plants. Based on the amount of baby zucchinis I’ve seen we’re going to have a healthy crop!
So, what to do with all those zucchini?
Of course there’s always the classics . . . zucchini bread, stuffed zucchini, fried zucchini, etc . . . but I found a great way to preserve them and enjoy them as a healthy snack, as well. Dehydrate them . . . zucchini crisps
v Slice the zucchini very thin
v Put the slices on dehydrator trays
v Sprinkle VERY lightly with salt, garlic powder, or whatever spices you like. (Be careful not to use too much salt because it will concentrate as the zucchini dry.)
The thin slices dry very quickly . . . in couple of hours. Voila! You have zucchini crisps. A yummy HEALTHY snack, imagine that! Because they are dehydrated they will store well in an airtight container.
