@alwaystj9 it’s almost that time of year… or has it been for awhile for you w/ your extended growing season?

While I’m not to the point of finding new homes for my zucchini (well, I did leave a cpl with my friend last night 😅) I am trying to look for other ways of using it.
My kids really liked zucchini chips. We took some up for our day of wood cutting/playing in the water yesterday and they ate them all. Lol

Anyone have a favorite recipe for zucchini that you’d like to inspire me with? 😁

Oh, me! I have one.

Get two wooden skewers and four wooden discs.
Assemble as shown. Find long steep road. Set free. Repeat until all zucchini are used up.

Use them plain or garnish as desired.

I like Mike’s plan @Boer Mama!

What’s the recipe for those zucchini chips, if you don’t mind? Those look pretty good! Like you, we have an overflow of them too

These were made with ~2TBS olive oil, 1TBS smoked paprika and 1TBS salt. So a bbq flavor chip.
I just found it online- I want to try one with the everything bagel seasoning if I can remember to buy that when I shop next.
I just used my dehydrator (I plug in on back porch so doesn’t heat up the house) but I guess you can also do in oven if you keep an eye on them so they don’t burn.
Next time I make them, I might salt the slices ahead of time and let them sit to draw some of the moisture out first.
I think I used 3 zucchini- enough to fill my dehydrator trays 😁

Thanks! We have a dehydrator too. That’s why I wanted to try them. Seems we don’t use it much anymore lol.

I would try the zucchini chip thing since we are expecting a week of hot (+30C), dry weather, but my zucchinis are not more than 5" long at this point.

How thick are the slices?
Do you just slice by hand with a knife or do you have some kind of thing to get such even slices?

Would flattening a zucchini with my van work?
I used a mandolin… you don’t want to slice super thin or they’ll shrink paper thin. I’m not sure I had mine but maybe 1/4-1/5”?
And younger ones will have more moisture than ones that are a little bigger. So you’d want to salt and let that moisture seep out before seasoning.

Again I had to look that up. I don't see how a mandolin will help. Do you push it through the strings? Seems like an expensive way to slice zucchini. Good ones are $1000s.

You can get some cheap ones for around $100 bucks lol you get 7 slices at a time though lol
