Crispy Smoked Ham and Prosciutto Chips
- 10 pieces 10 pieces 10 pieces Ham, smoked, thinly sliced ("deli ham")
- 10 pieces 10 pieces 10 pieces Prosciutto, if possible nitrate free
- 1 pieces 1 pieces 1 pieces Ground Fresh Black Peppercorns
- 1 pieces 1 pieces 1 pieces Garlic Powder
- 1 pieces 1 pieces 1 pieces dried Basil
- 1 pieces 1 pieces 1 pieces Chipotle Powder
- 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.)
- (If you can) let cool a bit before serving.
