Hello everyone! Sorry I haven’t been around much lately. There has been a lot going on and I was having this lovely new website designed. I am finally back though! I hope you made it through the winter ok! Ours hit right at the end, roaring out like a lion. Right now its cool and rainy.
I picked up some sliced mangos at the big box store last week and after nibbling on a couple slices I got bored with them. I had no clue what to do until my stepdaughter suggested we make Mango chips from them. She said she had them in Guatemala and they were awesome. So I figured why not.
I pulled out the trusty dehydrator ( you can do in an oven on lowest setting), we sliced them a bit thinner, sprinkled with course sea salt and set on 180.
that is all there was to it.
I have to admit every time I went to turn them I stole one…They were much better with salt than plain. I forgot to take pictures of the mangos in the dehydrator.
How did it come out? I was a bit disappointed. It took about 24 to 32 hours before they got crisp. there aren’t crispy like a potato chip but they snap. They are a bit hard to chew. Taste? not too bad. They are a bit tart and a bit salty. It reminded me of a margarita. I am not giving up though!
Have you ever made your own chips? Do you have a favorite recipe? Do you use a dehydrator if so what is your favorite use for it??
