You Win Some, You Lose Some... Dehydrator Edition
But I digress.
Recently, I had a win and a loss. Since I am soooo open and honest and real (haha!) I am going to share them.
First was the win. Cinnamon Radish Chips. They were pretty easy. Just slice the radishes up, toss with a little sugar (I used coconut palm sugar because that is what we have), olive oil, honey, and a good amount of cinnamon, and dehydrate. I let them go at 135* for... 8 hours-ish? I kept tasting them until they were ready. They are sweet, crunchy, and cinn-tastic.
|Dehydrated.... and veeeeeery tiny.|
I should've quit while I was ahead. But, noooooo, I was feeling ambitious. I wanted to make green bean "chips". I was at the checkout line at the supermarket and saw a bag of them being sold. With no idea how to make them, I just tossed some beans in olive oil and salt, and dehydrated them at the same time as the radish chips.
Ew. The flavor was good, but they were un-chewable. Completely hard-yet-too-chewey-to-eat. I didn't even take an after picture.
Jemma, however, ate a handful, They were super salty, so I think she choked them down just to get the salt off of them. Kid loves salt.
|Nice, happy, tasty green beans|
|Poor green beans about to meet their doom|
All in all I am calling this a win. I mean, I made tasty radish chips and I didn't buy the expensive green bean chips. That's a win, right? Right??
