How to Make Candied Zucchini Fruit Snacks (dehydrated/dehydrator)

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 13 steps you must follow to make Candied Zucchini Fruit Snacks (dehydrated/dehydrator) in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • in 3 separate pots place 1 1/2 c. diced zucchini per pot.
  • Step 2
  • add powder from 1 envelope kool aid per pot. each one a different color/flavor as per ingredients say.
  • Step 3
  • add 1 cup sugar per pot.
  • Step 4
  • add 4 cups water per pot. stir well.
  • Step 5
  • bring to a gentle boil and gently boil for 30 minutes. zucchini is done when tender and the color had soaked through into core of zucchini pieces.
  • Step 6
  • remove from heat and let cool for 30 minutes.
  • Step 7
  • drain very well, (after draining I placed them on a lint free towel to soak up any additional liquid. kool aid will stain said towel)
  • Step 8
  • place zucchini onto a food dehydrator. turn it on. thenlet them sit for about 24 hours or until gummy or until dried. they will be sticky.
  • Step 9
  • let cool. place your colored sugar crystals in 3 separate bowls (each bowl containing a different color 1.5 tbl.)
  • Step 10
  • place zucchini of same color into matching sugar gently coating your candied zucchini. this gives them a bit of crunch and keeps them from sticking together)
  • Step 11
  • place your done candied zucchini into a candy bowl and watch the kids eat them up not even knowing it's a vegetable.. :)
  • Step 12
  • enjoy ( even though this is a vegetable you pretty much boil most if the nutritional value out of it) they are very sweet but very easy to make) great for a project for kids to make provided you help with the boiling aspect)
  • Step 13
  • I used the as seen on t.v. quick minute microwave food dehydrator I bought at wal mart. this cut down my time and only took me 12-18 minutes to make the whole batch instead of 24 hours..
