I keep hearing “recession eating” on the news. Generally, the news anchors are discussing the rising prices of groceries. I eat fairly low on the food chain so I haven’t actually noticed a huge difference in grocery prices. But I do like to limit my food waste as much as possible-even though my worms enjoy the occassional treat.
3 cups water
2 cups carrot pulp
2 TB agave nectar
Spread the cracker mixture on Teflex-lined dehydrator trays as thinly as you can without leaving any holes. Dehydrate at 115 degrees for 6 hours, or until the tops are dry to the touch. Flip the giant crackers over onto the dehydrator screens and peel off the Teflex liners. Return the crackers to the dehydrator for approximately 3 hours, or until the tops are a bit drier. Remove and cut the sheets into small, cracker size squares. Place the crackers back in dehydrator until they are crispy and crunchy, approximately 6 to 10 more hours.
These are a fantastic snack. I love the cinnamon and carrot combination. Although, I’m sure a carrot ginger cracker would be just as amazing. Hmmm….I should ask for more carrot “waste”.
I was very happy with the results of my recycling project. I will never look at juice pulp the same way again. I wonder if juice bars would let me take some pulp off of their hands.
