Not me, the recipe I have for you today.
I’ve embraced the use of the dehydrator. I want crackers and chips but I’ve been looking for more healthy alternatives to the conventional fried chips or gluten laden crackers. Jennifer brought in some crackers that she gave me a couple of appointments ago and they were amazing. I haven’t been able to get mine as thick as hers but what I’m making is satisfying the chip craving.
Zucchini Onion has Zucchini, Braggs and Onions.
Spicy Salsa is my Salsa recipe from the other day. I used it before canning so it still qualifies as “raw food”
Both of those I just whizzed up in the blender (you may need to add water if it’s too thick for the blender to go). I added flax seeds and whizzed it up again. Then using a spatula I spread out a thin layer on teflex sheets and put it in the dehydrator.
Veggie Medley is one of done several times. This particular one has Zucchini, Green Peppers, Tomatoes, and Onions. You can really add in any vegetable, carrots, garlic, corn, etc. The process for making this was the same as the others, except that after I spread them out on the sheets, I sprinkled black sesame seeds on them.
They were all put into the dehydrator at 115 for 6-10 hours. When I do a small batch it takes less time. What I do is I check it at the 6 hour mark and if I can peel it off the sheets safely, I do that and put them on the screens without the teflex, it makes them dry faster and you want them to continue to dry until they’re crisp. Then I put them in containers and store them in the fridge. They stay crisper in the fridge. My Uncle gave my Mom a bag sealer doodad so I plan to make some ahead and store it. But really this is a project that can easily be done in the morning, then set up the dehydrator to work away while you are away at work.
Don’t have a dehydrator? I googled and found this Homemade Dehydrator. I can’t guarantee how well it works. Experiments are always fun though.
Just so there isn’t anything fiber related here. I picked up the first few Merlin Tree spindles. I have just a tease though. I’m offering them to blog audience first. There are only 3.
Left to Right – Merlin Tree Tree,
Snowflake with Purpleheart band(sold), Snowflake with brown wood band(he dropped them off and I didn’t get to talk to him about them to get the wood types). I hope I’ll have more soon but I don’t know when that will be. Dave explained that he’s been busy with work and not in the wood shop as often.
So if you want one, let me know (first come first gets). If not, I’ll list them on the site soon.
*edit* I should have mentioned. They’re $38 each plus shipping.
Oh, and did you notice the fiber it was sitting on. That was my only purchase. Some fun wool from Pippikneesocks. I hear she’s going to update soon.
