Drain zucchini and place on dehydrator trays

Dry at 130 degrees for about 18 hours

When dry, place in a bowl and toss with powdered sugar

Enjoy!

 

I was surprised at how tasty these were.  You would have never known they were zucchini!

The powdered sugar will help keep it from sticking together

6 cups of zucchini took about 1 quart of pineapple juice
