How to Make Carrot Chips in a Dehydrator

You can also make carrot chips in a dehydrator. This process is very simple, but takes much more time for the dehydrator to pull the moisture out of the carrots. Because carrots are hard by nature, it will take even longer.

All you do is cut them into thin slices. You can slice them thicker, but remember the thicker the carrot the longer the time in the dehydrator.

Just place them onto the dehydrator, and set for 15 hours. After this time has gone by. Simply check the carrots, and see if they're still moist or pliable. If so put it on for 5 more hours at a time. Until you get the desired consistency.
