Dehydrating Zucchini

  1. Wash and slice the zucchini and cut into 3/8" slices and throw away the ends. Steam zucchini over boiling water for a few minutes.
  2. Arrange the zucchini on your food dehydrator trays, making sure the zucchini slices don't overlap.
  3. Turn on your food dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F (or per your food dehydrator's instructions).
  • Dehydrated zucchini will be brittle when fully dried.
  • Drying time: between 5-11 hours.
  • Please remember to rotate your trays for even drying.

This is a Great Mandoline from Amazon


Make it a little easier by using a knife or a mandoline, but please be careful. I was showing off there cutting two zucchini at one time ...

Practice makes perfect!

Make sure that you keep the cuts a uniform thickness, for even drying times.

Thinner ones make great chips, and thicker ones are OK for mashing up (after re-hydrating) for use in zucchini loaves.
