Making Dehydrated Banana Chips FTW

Gather your helpers. You will need them to fend off the snakes,
giant iguana’s, spiders, and jungle rats.

Tromp through the jungle and cut down your bananas, pick off the
banana spiders.


Banana’s should be yellow, not too green… and not black and
squishy as seen below.


If you need to ripen green banana’s just put them in a dish or
paper bag for a day or two with an apple and they will ripen
rapidly. Gather your ingredients. 1/2 Cup Maple Syrup, 1 Cup of Lemon
Juice, 1/2 Cup Honey and a couple of swigs of rum.

Cut up several bunches of ripe bananas – around 8 cups, into slices
about 1/8th inch thick. Put the liquid ingredients together and
then pour it on the bananas. Allow this to soak into the bananas for
about an hour or two.

Put a plastic sheet on the last layer of the dehydrator. Drain the
bananas and put the slices on the sheet. Put bananas on each level
of the dehydrator after that until all the bananas are in the

Put the dehydrator on the highest setting for six hours then bring it
down to fruit. Dehydrate for 2 days. If the bananas stick to the
sheets just put them in the freezer and they will pop right off the

This is what the bananas look like all golden and honey dried.



Love, Leck.

  1. I used your recipe today. We have a four drawer excalubur dehydrator and six bananas filled it just right!

    I didn’t use rum — was I supposed to put it in or drink it?

    Dave went to the store and said the snakes and spiders were just awful — I was lucky to get the bananas.

    Could you send your companions over for a visit. I can tell from the pictures that they are attack tigers and would protect Dave when he goes to the store. I’m married to him and want to keep him. You can send the peradactyl too. I don’t like them as much as I like tigers. When I was young they used to peck my hands just because I was sent to collect their eggs.

  2. I’m curious to try your recipe but wonder what kind of plastic you used on the bottom-would parchment paper work, I think plastic wrap would melt on me

  5. Howdy are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying
    to get started and set up my own. Do you require any
    coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
