    I made zucchini candy day before yesterday with frozen grape juice. I saved the juice and used it today. I simmered 4 giant zucchini, chopped small, until translucent. Then I drained the zucchini and puréed it in the blender. I put a can of frozen grape juice concentrate in the purée and stirred it in.

    I put 1 1/2 cups purée per dryer rack. It’s in the dehydrator now. I got 5 full trays and a cup on a 6th tray.

    @baymule I love zucchini, but this just didn't sound good to me. :confused:Silly too because I've used zucchini in all kinds of things. I love it's versatility! But I finally pulled it up to see how you did this, and it looks great. :droolI bet I'd love them. It's silly sometimes overcoming those first eeeewww reactions to something I'm sure I'd really enjoy. :D There's just something about the words zucchini and candy together... :lol:It's basically like fruit leather or fruit rolls, right?

    I really like your dryer racks. Mine are much smaller. I'd probably have to make mine in an oven if I tried something like this. Is that parchment paper underneath?

    They are delicious! I bought solid sheets with my dehydrator.
