OMGOODNESS Veggie Chips!

Thank you Jenita (see the "Zucchini Chips thread") for the info on dehydrating zucchini into crispy chips!

I sliced up what I had on hand, squash and cucumber, and loaded up my dehydrator. I sprinkled on some garlic and herb seasoning and man oh man are these good! Crispy and crunchy! My husband ate one whole tray because I couldn unload them fast enough to stop him!!

I am now working on my second batch and this time I sprinkled on chili powder on some and garlic powder on others. YUMMM!!

I guess I'll just have to try this...have about 3 dehydrators that have been collecting dust for some time...finally, something to use them for. Thanks for the input...and advice...

Has anyone used a Ronco food dehydrator? Amazon has it for $39.99 (free shipping), but they aren't available yet. That sounds like a good price. The Target website has it for the same price, but they charge shipping.

I think my chip-munching husband might enjoy veggie chips. What are some other things besides zucchini that dehydrate well? What about sliced strawberries? Can cantaloupe be dried? Mushrooms? Tomatoes? Green peppers? Eggplant?

The blurb says that the Ronco also make jerky. Has anyone tried making a low carb jerky in it?

Hi Linda, I'm not sure what model the Ronco is, but I had one at one time and wasn't real happy with it. I now have a Snackmaster that I bought at WalMart, and I like it much better. I think it was right at $40 or so. The biggest difference was that my Ronco had NO temperature control...my Snackmaster does. I had to rotate the Ronco trays every several hours (a pain!!) but don't have to with my Snackmaster.

I have made jerky with mine, and it is SO good!!

Chips

I'm so glad you liked them! I don't think I would have ever thought about drying them if I hadn't come across it in my canning/freezing/drying book. Even then I was very skeptical. Were the cucumbers just as good? May have to give that a try. What a way to eat your veggies, huh?

Jenita,

Yes, the cukes were just as good! I also did some kohlrabi, but they curled up and tasted a bit strong. These are really light and crispy and really help with the "crunch" factor!

Just a fun tip for something you can dehydrate-marshmellows. My son loves them. They taste like astronaut icecream or the marshmellows in cereal. I havent tried it with the lc version of masrshmellows. I put them on my dehydrator for about three hours. They do need to be kept in a sealed container or they will rehydrate by the moisture in the air. Veggie chips are great!!! I sprinkle them with ranch dressing mix. Watch the carbs, needs very little mix as it is very strong.
