Zucchini can be harvested throughout its growing
season. Unlike winter squash, immature zucchini is very
desirable as the seeds are soft and the rind tender.
Both small and large zucchini can be dried. Choose
unblemished rinds.

Preparation: Wash thoroughly. Peel if desired. Cut
into 1/4 to 1/2-inch slices, chop into cubes, coarsely grate
or cut into julienne strips. If zucchini is larger than 12
inches, the large seeds and fibrous tissue should be
removed. For vegetable chips, soak in barbecue sauce or soy
sauce before drying. Approximate drying time is 6 to 10
hours. Characteristic dried products are crisp and hard.
