Thanks, Holly Reed (aka Storm) for sending me this picture! She tried out the "Zucchini Chips to Dry For" which are a new recipe from my 2nd edition.
I've got to say, I am LOVIN my new Excalibur food dehydrator! It's big, bold, and fabulous. Every week, my daughter asks if we can have a "rainbow party!" We load up all nine trays with healthy, delicious morsels in the order of a rainbow...first, strawberries, then mango, bananas, zucchini chips, blueberries, and blackberries. They all dry wonderfully and make such nourishing bites for on the go! I am also really excited to be making fruit roll-ups, raw granola, and raw tortillas from scratch. Yum!

  2. also, i wonder how really wet berries (like blackeberries) dry. i never dry them because i think they would vanish!

  3. Seasoning makes ALL the difference. For fun, I tried plain zucchini along with the seasoned, and the plain chips just looked sad and tasted bland! A little good oil is crucial with these...oh, and I am on day TWO of trying to dry my blueberries--as I write this, I hear the gentle hum of the dehydrator in the distance. Will they ever dry??? Only time will tell....

  4. did you break the skin? i think blueberries need to be cut in half to dry well (because the skin is tight). i think i read that somewhere. like drying grapes.

    although i realize that raisins are WHOLE grapes. ehehehhe.

  5. The sound of my dehydrator is getting WAY old! Next time I'll try cutting big-n-juicies in half! By the way, I don't know how else to contact you, which I wanted to do for three reasons--I wanted to send you a copy of this recipe, let you know that I put you in the acknowledgements for the 2nd edition, and also ask if you would have the time to help me put an RSS feed on this blog. I've had requests, but don't seem to be having success doing it. I could also make you an admin on this, and you could go in at your leisure (if you gots any) and do it if you were so inclined....just a thought!

  6. Hi, I just found your blog. I found the link on the raw chat on vegweb, which I had not checked in a long while. I recognize Storm's pic for the zucchini chips, they look so good! Now all I have to do is get myself a dehydrator so I can make these babies! I'm pretty sure my kids would love these. Do they come out crunchy I wonder?
