Zucchini candy recipe

September 6, 2009

This seemed so strange I had to try it. Glad I did ! Amazing how it tastes like fruit snacks. Cheap, too. Not saying it is healthy, but a fun treat. My family likes black cherry the best. I have been drying overnight, put on about 9 or 10 pm. and it is done in the morning. Works great for the timing for me.

Zucchini Candy

10 cups peeled diced zucchini 1/2 inch cubes ( I use "worms" about 3 inches long and 1/12 inch thick and wide. The little dice would be good in muffins, though.

3 cups water

2 pkgs. unsweetened Koolaid

2 1/2 cups sugar

Peel zucchini,

diced, removing seeds. Mix the liquid syrup together. Add zucchini. Bring to

a boil and them simmer for 25 min. Drain. Put on dehydrator trays. Dry 14

hours at 125 degrees. Turn pieces over and dry another 4 hours. This will

feel dry and not sticky when done. Store in jars or other tightly sealed

containers.If you dip in sugar when you turn them, they will be more like

"gum drops" on the outside.

You can do the same thing with the zucchini

but use 48 oz. pineapple juice

2 T. pineapple extract

2 1/2 cups sugar

1/4 cup lemon juice
