I assume it is the humidity down here, but every time I make banana chips, I dry them for DAYS and DAYS and they are still chewy. They never ever get crispy, even on the edges. This is totally fine with me, but I have had to rename them "banana chews" instead of "banana chips" so as not to mislead my friends.
I am jealous of your butter slicer! I can't find a decent one! Guess I'll have to hit an estate sale. BUT, thank you for the idea, I have 3 brown bananas on my counter trying to figure out what to make, and banana chips sound easy! I will use my used excaliber 5 tray. Thanks!
If you do not have a butter slicer....Use an egg cutter. The kind for cutting hard boiled eggs. I use mine to cut bananas, strawberries, mushrooms, and eggs.Thanks for the post.www.kidsandcanningjars.blogspot.comMelissa
How long did you soak the banana pieces in the water and fruit fresh?Thanks!
Cliff, they weren't in very long, probably 5-10 minutes. I put them in as I sliced until the bowl was full, then let them sit while I got the dehydrator tray out and then started taking them out and loading the tray.
you know that I love fresh bananas, but I have never liked bananas dehydrated or in puddings. I only like Fresh bananas or banana bread. I know I'm weird.
I'm pretty sure that I now need a butter slicer. And I love your blog! It was so good to see you all at the wedding!
Ohmeeegosh. That is brilliant! Grinding those bad boys in a spice grinder after dehydrating and making banana bread mix...and cookie mixes...and and and...oooooh I'm so excited. Thank you!
Here's a link to a great banana slicer on the Excalibur website. http://www.excaliburdehydrator.com/Banana-Slicer-12-39-regular-prod.htm
