These crispy green beans on the Nesco Snackmaster Pro are super packed with green bean flavors. It’s like if you put all of the flavors of 10 beans into each single bean. They do stay crispy for a while, but you’ll want to eat them fairly soon after removing them from your dehydrator to still enjoy that crispiness. If you do have any beans leftover store them in an air-tight container.
Don’t be shy with the salt when you remove the beans from the dehydrator. It helps makes sure the beans stay dry and crunchy. You want crispy green beans on the Nesco Snackmaster Pro, not soggy ones.
I don’t think you can use this same technique with frozen or canned beans. Green beans, fresh from the garden or farm are best. This is a great way to use up a batch of beans when you have extras.
I like to load up my dehydrator. To do that I picked up a handful of extra trays. They really add a whole lot more drying space! Since I have to rotate my trays, I write a number on each one on a piece of blue painter’s tape so I can keep track of them.
Also try making raisins using your dehydrator! They’re outstanding!
