DIRECTIONS

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