Mesh Dehydrator Trays
Peel and slice one banana at a time into ¼ inch thick slices.
Dip the banana slices into a pretreatment solution to prevent the banana from browning.
Arrange the banana slices on a dehydrator tray, leaving space between each banana slice.
Repeat with all the bananas and fill all the dehydrator trays.
Stack the trays on the dehydrator base and place the lid on.
Turn the dehydrator on and set the temperature to 135 F. degrees.
Dehydrate the banana chips for 6 to 12 hours. Every 3 to 4 hours rotate the dehydrator trays and check the banana chips. The dehydrating time will vary.
Once the chips are done allow them to cool completely before storing.
Conditioning is recommended.
Store the banana chips in air tight containers.
