  • In a large bowl combine vegetable slices and 1/2 teaspoon salt; toss to coat. Arrange in a single layer on mesh-lined dehydrator trays.

  • Dehydrate at 135°F for 8 to 10 hours or until dry and crisp,*** shifting trays as necessary to dry chips evenly. (Timings may vary depending on the air humidity and the amount of moisture in the vegetables.) If desired, sprinkle with additional salt.

*Tip:

Use a mandoline to slice vegetables evenly.

**Tip:

If using beets, precook beet slices separately to prevent the red color of the beets from "bleeding" on to the other vegetables.

***Tip:

When done, the chips will look evenly dry, the edges will have curled, and the chips will be crisp. Remove a chip or two and let cool a few minutes. Taste for crispness. Keep drying if chips are not crisp.
