dehydrator verdict: success!

July 11, 2011

I love the dehydrator!!

This morning before I left for work I put sliced bananas on one of the trays.  They weren’t even quite ripe when I put them in but they were really sweet and almost caramelized after they dried.

On two of the other trays (on the fruit roll sheets) I put taco chip “batter”.  I’m completely sure that is not the right word for it but it was essentially a liquidy mixture of corn kernels, cheddar cheese, red bell pepper, cumin, cayenne and salt — all pureed.

The “batter” turned crispy and when I pulled it out I was able to break the sheets into small chips.  I’m not sure they taste exactly like a taco but they definitely taste like a Mexican corn chip.  Really good!

It was such a success that I decided to peel and slice some peaches and plumcots that were over-ripe and threw them in there for the night.  I can’t wait to try them in the morning…

Anyone else have a dehydrator?  Any ideas or recipes you want to share?
