Dehydrating Bananas

Banana chips anyone?

Dehydrating Fruit-14

My oldest son, who won’t eat store-bought banana chips, loves these.  In fact, they don’t stick around more than a day here.  Good thing they’re easy to make!

Here’s how:

Dehydrated Banana Chips

-Peel bananas and cut into slices about 1/4″ thick.

-To keep them from browning too badly, you can give them a quick dip in a bowl of water with lemon juice or ascorbic acid.  I’ve done this both ways and there’s not too much of a difference if you don’t!

-Using mesh drying screens on your dehydrator trays, place banana slices in the trays.

Dehydrating Bananas

-Dry at 135˚ for 8-10 hours.

They will feel dry and leathery to the touch but will still be flexible.  Let them cool before storing to keep them from sticking together while warm.
