My zucchini plants suffered a set back due to chicken attack back at the beginning of spring and I haven't harvest any of my own yet, but a friend was struggling with zucchini overload and gave me several kgs. I have been wanting to try drying zucchinis, so this was the perfect opportunity. The last time I had a glut of my own zucchinis I resorted to making zucchini soup! It was awful! I though dried zucchini might be more useful.
I sliced the zucchinis using the slicer on my grater, which was very quick and produced a nice thin slice. Then I laid them out on the dehydrator trays, about 1 zucchini to a tray. I ran the drier on and off for several days until the zucchinis were dry enough. I then sealed the chips in vacuum bags, so that they will last longer. I hope to be able to get these out occasionally in winter when we miss zucchini, so they can be added to soups and stews.
How do you deal with a zucchini glut? Have you dried anything interesting recently?
