For me it would be flax crackers - there are a ton of recipes and almost no-fail. The simplest recipe of all - soak flax in water to cover until slimy/slippery... pour on teflex sheets (or bakers' parchment paper) and dehydrate.
All manners of additions can be made to make them tasty.
Second choice: Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Don't even have to dehydrate much - just warm. MMMMMM.

My vote is for cheesy kale chips!!! *salivates just thinking of them* :D
Congratulations on your awesome find!! :eek:

yes...kale chips, bananas, apples, tomatoes if you have any, anything that's about the go bad. I've made eggplant bacon, a few crackers...make sure you add enough water to the crackers. The flax will bind you like crazy if you don't. Speaking from experience and PAIN!
So manygreat things to do. I was the same way. So excited but didn't know what to do with it. I bought mine for the same price on CL...isn't it exciting!!

I agree with Kale and Banana chips. Oh and you can't go wrong with Mango slices. Oh boy! :D.

Why choose? Do all three!
Kale chips + flax crackers are best!

you really scored on that dehydrator! congrats!
oh check out that Tropigal thread for garlic bread; it's with jicama. it's a humdiner of a dehydrator recipe. it should be floating around right now
the cheesy kale chips, and onion rings (from the same sauce used on the kale chips) omgosh this is the best, my next batch of 'dip/sauce' I'm just going to refrigerate it and have it as a soup.
I've got a batch of onion rings and a small batch of kale chips going right now. this time though i'm leaving off the cayenne pepper on the chips it was just too overpowering crunching into a kale crisp and finding a glob of pure cayenne... not a good thing.

Go simple, just dehydrate some bananas! OMG to die for.
But if you want to get fancy, I'd make some crackers!
These are nice and full and filling-tasting:
EVERYBODY’S FAVORITE CRACKERS
1 cup soaked sunflower seeds
1 cup soaked walnuts
1 cup soaked almonds
1 cup red onion (chopped)
3 tablespoons flaxseed
3 teaspoons cumin seed
2 teaspoons salt
Mix in food processor or Champion Juicer with blank on. Spread on parchment paper or TefIon sheets. Make them very thin.
Then using a pizza cutter, cut in squares. They will be easier to break into pieces when dry.
Dehydration time is about 15 to 20 hours.

Careful with bananas. When you're first going raw, they feed candida!
