Hello All, It's been a while since I posted. So I have some questions to throw out there. I'm learning to bake beet chip, sweet potato & Zucchini chips. I saw a recipe on the doctors show that cooks the red beets for 10min in distilled vinegar & water & drain, than you can either bake them or deep fry them. I have reviewed other recipes that just bake in a little EVOO & seasoning. Another recipe people are doing is making them in the microwave oven. for several minutes keeping an eye on them. I use to have a dehydrator but I was not happy with any of the end products. Also, I (had) a convection oven, that would have been the perfect solution. So my two questions are: 1. Is there a way to help minimize the shrinkage during or before baking of the veggie chips? 2. Is there any one recipe that COULD be better than another? So far, I have tried two different ways, with oil & without oil. My next option is to try the Microwave oven. Does anyone have kind of a full proof way of making these awesome veggie chips? Thank you, P.J.
