Cantaloupe chips (dehydrated slices)

YESSSS… these are good, well, if you like Cantaloupe, that is.

Drying them out concentrates it’s flavor — in a big way.

In a dehydrator: dry at 90 degrees for about 8 hours, or over night.

Here are pics of dried cantaloupe chips, two varieties:

The dehydrated bell pepper was AWESOME.

And worthy of its own post, another time, tho.

Here is another tray of

dehydrating cantaloupe, bell pepper … and plums.

Dried cantaloupe, bell peppers and plums

you can see how each of them shrink, and that the plums remain sticky.

The plums have quite a bit of ‘bound water’ — which I’ll talk about in another blog post, stay tuned.
