Jerked Juice Pulp Crackers

I love juice! I love making juice & drinking juice and did I say drinking juice?  But the one thing I don't like is all the left over pulp.  What do you do with all that juice pulp? I usually feed it to my worms or toss it in the compost, but even with those greener options it still feels like a waste to me.  So I decided I would make something out of that rainbow pulp and TA DA.....

Jerked Juice Pulp Crackers

Ingredients:

Your left over pulp from a juicing session (I had about 5 or 6 cups after making juice for me & my man)
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 tbsp Chia
1/2 cup of your fresh juice or water
1 1/2 tsp Jerk Seasoning

Instructions:

In a large bowl, mix your juice pulp and juice/water until well combined. Add your seasonings and Chia and mix it well.

Firmly press your pulp mixture onto a fine screen for your dehydrator. My
Nesco has these great Clean- A-Screens that worked perfectly for my pulp. Make sure your soon to be crackers are a nice even thickness all around.  Mine was about 1/4 inch or so thick.


Dehydrate your mixture for about 8-12 hours at 115 degrees.  The time will vary depending on how wet your pulp is and your dehydrator. My crackers took about 12 hours to reach the perfect crispiness. Once done you can either cut them into crackers or go for a more rustic look by breaking them into dip-able sized pieces!


These Jerked Juice Pulp Crackers had just the right bit of kick and worked wonderfully with my hummus. Not only are they delicious, but a perfect way to add some fiber to your snack and make use of all that gorgeous healthy pulp! Got a fruitier juice? Why not make a sweet cracker with cinnamon, ground vanilla & nutmeg?


Oh the pulpy possibilities!
