Yogurt Drops

  • Yogurt: any flavor, any quantity 

Thicker brands of commercial yogurt work best. Drop quarter-teaspoons (1/4 teaspoon) of yogurt onto a lightly-oiled fruit roll sheet. Dry in your dehydrator for 8–16 hours at 135° until chewy. Remove from sheet while warm. Chill and store in refrigerator or freezer. Optional: for fun, sprinkle drops with chopped peanuts or coconut before drying.

Taco Chips

  • 1 cup whole-kernel or creamed corn

  • 1/2 cup red or green peppers, diced 
  • 1 Tbsp onion, chopped 
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper 
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • Salt (to taste)

Blend together all ingredients in a blender or food processor at high speed. Salt to taste.
