Vegetarian Melon Jerky

This is a very simple melon Jerky recipe and can be done with any of the non watermelon type of melons, including Pecos melons, Cantaloupes, Muskmelons, Honeydews, Israeli Melons, and many others.  Cut the melon into eights, and then filet the skin off the flesh.  Slice the melon lengthways into jerky style strips.  Arrange and dry these in your food dryer.  I will mention that this is my favorite dried fruit.  Tasty and filling.  Being creative with your preps gives you a variety of foods, and a variety of foods gives you a variety of nutrition.
