This is dehydrated zucchini which has been candied. Some people say it tastes like dried apricots.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • candied zucchini

  • 6 medium zucchini, very firm, peeled
  • 2 cups sugar, granulated
  • 34 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, strained or 1 tablespoon other flavoring


  1. .Make syrup by boiling sugar and water together for 5 minutes.
  2. Cut zucchini into 1/2" cubes.
  3. Drop cubes into boiling syrup and cook over low heat only until barely tender (they will become somewhat translucent).
  4. Chill in the syrup overnight.
  5. The next day, spread cubes on dryer trays and dry at 135°F for about 8 to 12 hours, until leathery.
  6. Store airtight.
  7. I know I saw where someone used Kool-Aid to flavor it. Any extract should work, too.
