Food Dehydrating
#1
I saw a gardening thread and a canning thread so I thought a dehydrating thread was needed. Here is a some corn I just dried, that is four pounds of sweet corn in a quart jar. The second picture is dried potato cubes, the color looks strange because it is in an old blue half gallon ball jar[Image: 2aj6zph.jpg][Image: 9693eh.jpg]

Anyone have a good recipe for banana chips? I've tried 3 different times and can't get it the way I want. I want it to taste like the banana chips you buy at the store, crunchy and sweet.

I believe store most store bought are deep fried and have a lot of sugar added

I know they are fried in coconut oil and some sugar is added, but how exactly and in what order, I don't know. I tried frying them in coconut oil and the bananas just started falling apart. Maybe they were too ripe.

Did you see this? http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Banana-Chips

If regular bananas won't work, you could try plantains. They're a little more meaty and would hold up to cooking better.

Probably, I tried 3 different ways of making them based on google searches, there are a ton of recipes out there. I was more looking for a recommendation for a specific recipe based on personal experience. In theory that would be easier than trying 100 different recipes that I find online and see which one I like best.

I always just slice mine and put them in the dehydrator, I have never tried deep frying them. We use them in cereal and banana bread and other recipes so I just want plain banana, I picked up a 40 pound box a couple weeks ago a Roots. The dehydrator was running 24/7

I use a nesco american harvest model, with 2 added trays works really well for around 70$ total.


A great place to check out is:
