This week in fail. Little green weapons.

Food dehydrator..check
Fresh sugar snap peas..check
Dried sugar snap peas? Chec….erm not so much a check.

This week in FAIL……..CHECK, CHECK, CHECK.

I wanted crisp,  flavorful little sugar snaps.  I’ve got little green weapons. The dehydration project known as sugar snap was not a success.  Not at all.


freshly washed, dried and placed into the dehydrator


5 hours in, looking pretty promising


at 10 hours (2 hours less than the 12-16 hour time frame advised) I removed them. They are hard.:(


My little weapon of destruction

They are NOT crispy and delightful, as I hoped they would be. They are crunchy and not at all pleasant to eat.

My search for a way (other than raw) to snack on sugar snaps will continue, oh yes it will.



  1. I wonder if you have to split them in two or something. Hmm, this is puzzling. Maybe because they’re so airy.

    • You’re right. It’s puzzling. I’m going to keep trying. 🙂

    i was googling this very thought today and found your blog from april. any success yet?
    i have a bowl of fresh sugar snap peas and wanted to turn them into those supermarket snack crunch style snacks ;D

    • I have had some success in oven roasting them. A little olive oil, a little sea salt. 300 degree oven for 15-20 min.
      I have not had any success with the dehydrator and the sugar snaps.

      Thanks for the comment!
