In this recipe I make two different veggies, a Summer squash and some golden potato chips. They are easy/peasy to make, and a bit of fun also. Made them as snacks for tonight’s movie night… Hope I made enough. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How To Make dehydrator essentials: vinegar & salt veggie chips

  • 1
  • 2
    You will need a dehydrator to make this recipe and, if you have one, a mandoline to evenly slice the veggies.
  • 3
    Before dipping the potato slices into the oil vinegar mixture, they must be put into boiling water for 3 – 4 minutes, or you will not like what you get. They will turn an ugly brown/black.
  • 4
    Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  • 5
    Cut the squash into slices between 1/4 and 1/8 inches thick. Do the same for the potatoes, except just a bit thinner.
  • 6
    Add the vinegar, oil, and salt to a bowl and whisk to combine.
  • 7
    Add the squash and evenly coat.
  • 8
    Remove and place on the drying racks, leave some space between each one.
  • 9
    After boiling, dump the potatoes into the mixture, evenly coat and place on additional drying racks.
  • 10
    Set the heat to 140f (60c), and the timer to 5 hours.
  • 11
    Take out when they are nice and crispy, it might take a bit more time.
