Yield: 1 cup dried chips

Note: Foods feel softer when warm. To test for dryness, remove a
few pieces and allow to cool before testing for crispness.

To intensify flavor, leave cooked zucchini marinate in liquid for a few
days. The dried product tastes like a sweet, zucchini pickle.
The tender peels may be left on smaller zucchini, if desired. For larger
zucchini, remove seeds before using.
