Accessories you need



I slice this and freeze for school lunch boxes.

I have made it with both carrot and sweet potato. I am going to try apple in place of zucchini so will post an update when I have.

And for adventurous types or campers....I also currently dont have an oven so cook this in a hooded BBQ elevated on a rack with foil under the rack.
