Recently received a cheap dehydrator. Made my own jerky. Banana, kiwi, kale, and cucumber chips.

Wanna make my own soups that can be hydrated easily for camping and such.

Also like to make healthy snacks for my family and boy to take to school.

Kale Chips:
I've used Kale, Chard
1 Bunch
- remove big center rib and tear into large chip sizes.
Spray with olive oil, I use a misto.
Combined equal amounts of seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper.
Set at 135, takes a couple hours.

Cucumber Chips:
Used my garden Cuc's, they were monsters. I wanted a snack to eat with Ceviche since I'm trying to cut back some carbs.

-Peel

-Slice even slices, 1/8" or so thick( i used a mandolin)

-Dredge in lime juice, sprinkle with pico de gallo ( the dried powder found everywhere here in SoCal put maybe mexican markets other places)

135 for a long time, sorry my time frame is not to exact. I just check em until they are crispy.

Any ideas would be welcomed.

My favorite thing to do with mine is to make garlic salt and garlic powder.

Peel an assload of garlic, slice it, and dry it out for 48 hours.

For garlic powder, you're done.

For garlic salt, mix it with a nice fine sea salt.

Nice mullet, going to give that a whirl. You just process it or use a mortar to get it into a powder?

I did an enormous batch this last time. I ran it through my fancy-schmancy Blendtec blender to powderize it.

The first time I did it (pre-Blendtec) I used my coffee grinder.
