It was by accident that I discovered these zero waste chips. Locally grown zucchini was on sale at the grocery store. I grabbed a dozen or so of the little squashes with the intent of preserving them for the winter.
I sliced quarter inch rounds and laid them on trays and popped them into the dehydrator. It would probably work just as well to dry them in the oven set to the lowest temperature, or in the sun if you live in a hot, dry climate. After the zucchini dried to a crisp, I let them cool for a couple of minutes before transferring to a Mason jar. The dried zucchini was meant to go into soups during the winter months, but I dipped my hand into the jar. One chip, then two and before long half the jar was gone. I think I ate six zucchinis in one sitting. They were that good. Don’t get me wrong, these aren’t potato or tortilla chips, but they are crunchy, satisfying, and sturdy enough to hold a thick dip. And they come with no packaging to boot.
On a side note, I’ll be taking a little hiatus from blogging. Sometimes living the simple life means taking a break, even from the things you love. Thank you dear readers for coming to this space. I’ll be back soon! xo
