 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6                    Zucchini -- medium, very firm,
                         - peeled
    2       c            Sugar, granulated
      3/4   c            Water
    1       tb           Lemon juice -- strained, or
                         -other flavoring, see notes
 
   Make syrup by boiling sugar and water together for 5 minutes.  Cut
   zucchini into 1/2 cubes.  Drop cubes into boiling syrup and cook over
 low
   heat only until barely tender (they will become somewhat
 transluscent).
   Chill in the syrup overnight.
   
   The next day, spread cubes on dryer trays and dry at 135F for about 8
 - 12
   hours, until leathery.  Store airtight.
   
   Flavor notes:  This is very good and has almost no (if any) squash
 flavor.
   I asked DH to taste a batch made with a tiny bit of red food color and
 1/2
   ts. cherry flavor in place of the lemon juice, and he guessed that it
 was
   “dried apricots”!
