Happy Friday everyone!
Can I interest you in a little something for a laid back weekend?
This simple snack takes a while to get ready, but requires minimal work effort. It can be done using a dehydrator or in the oven, is low in carbs and tastes delicious!
• 1 pack of sliced Smoked Ham, ie the type you would put on a sandwich (if you ate bread that is…) and preferably nitrate free.
• 1 pack of Prosciutto, preferably nitrate free.
• Spices of choice.
(I made the following seasoning variations: Ham:
– Garlic/Black Pepper/Basil
– Black Pepper
Cut the ham and prosciutto slices into strips.
Season one side of the strips the way you prefer (note: you can go quite easy on the spices, the flavor intensifies during dehydration…).
Spread the strips out evenly (avoid overlapping) on the dehydrator trays and dehydrate until dry and crispy.
(If you make them in the oven I suggest spreading the strips out on fine gridded cooling racks, place them in the oven, turn the oven on at the lowest possible temperature and leave the oven door slightly open (I usually just stick a spoon in between when closing it, leaving a small gap that lets the moist out), and then dehydrate until crispy.)
