View Full Version : Help! Limp kale chips
08-26-2008, 03:25 PM
I finally made kale chips after everyone raved about them and whoa they were so rawsome! :D But I found that after storing them in a tightly sealed container they become limp and extremely chewy. I LOVED them right out of the dehydrator and so did everyone else. (As a side note, I could have eaten it all before it went into the dehydrator!) :rolleyes:
So my obvious question is...How do you keep them from going limp? Has anyone had this experience?

It happens...just pop them right back into the dehydrator and they'll crisp back up. But I usually store them out because they get eaten up so quickly but you may want to try storing in the fridge if they're gonna be around for a little bit.

Mine don't last too long around my house -- actually dh sneaks them out of the D before they're done -- and when I open the dehydrator - and find there's only one kale chip left on the tray... dh quickly defends himself..."I only had a couple!" .... :cool: hmmmmm..... :rolleyes:
on the very rare occassions when I've been able to save a few -- I found that the humidity here in Hawaii made the once fabulously crispy kale chips quite... well - limp... :( ...
I posted the same question as you - and Rawkinlocs is so right -- popping them back into the D will crisp them right up again...

Thanks for your replies. I have put them back in the D to crisp them back up again and they're just as good; however, I'd like to take them with me for a snack. I guess we'll just have to eat them at home, unless there's a trick to it. :rolleyes:

Yep, just pop back in the dehydrator and they will crisp back up. I've had no problems putting mine into ziplock baggies (which I use over and over and over again - I haven't bought any in years) and they stay crisp.

So who has a good recipe for these delights? I had some at a raw food potluck recently and they were divine!

I just leave mine in a ziploc not closed. That said they only last a day or two at most.
