ZuSKINNIES (Zucchini Skins) – A healthy and Beneficial Snack

zuskinnies
I make ZucCandies (A candy that is made with Zucchini and tastes like Fruit Snacks/Gummies) and never wanting to waste anything… I, ALSO, use the Peeled Skins to make ZuSKINNIES (A great snack to replace Chips!), which are an Extremely Beneficial part of the Zucchini: 
Zucchini’s skin is a more concentrated source of nutrients. Carries Vitamin C, Potassium, and most of the Zucchini’s Fiber and Vitamin K. The skin itself is a rich source of Antioxidant Carotenoids, including Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Beta-Carotene.

Skins from peeled Zucchinis (About 16 oz.)
2T Water
1T Pepper
2tsp – 1T Sea Salt (I did 1T)

Place all into ziploc bag, mix around. Marinade 30 minutes. Place onto Dehydrator. Dehydrate til dried to crisp (Crisps a lil as sits, as well. I want to say I did 8-12 hours. Not sure).

Charcoal Grilling Tip: If it tastes like straight up smoke… You’re doing it wrong! We build a hill in center of grill. Light charcoal (We used Regular Charcoal). Once coals are ashy grey, they are ready. Place on food, on outside of hill of charcoal. Prop Grill Open, using a Slightly crushed pop can. Chicken: Lay Chicken on outer part of grill (Outside hill). Once Chicken isn’t sticking to grate, so much, it’s ready to flip. Flip once, that’s it. Cook til Thermometer reads correct temp.
