You had to expect something like dehydrated potatoes coming from a potato farmer’s wife  🙂

    Why Dehydrate Potatoes

    As a potato farmers wife you would think that I always have potatoes on hand…uhh wrong. Cory is only mediocre about bringing them to me from the seed cellar when I ask. It’s kind of like the old saying about a mechanics car is always broke down, during the winter he has to check the seed cellar everyday but for whatever reason potatoes don’t always make it to my door.

    During the summer however I often have potatoes coming out of my ears as Cory has to do weekly digs to ensure proper growth, often times many if these potatoes go into the trash because my mother in law can’t cook them fast enough. That is until this summer when I started dehydrating them. My aunt gave me the idea and I must admit that I let her do the hard work of figuring out the details and relay them to me.

    Below you will find the directions on how to dehydrate potatoes which you will quickly be using in a variety of things. Pot pies, soups, stews au gratin casseroles and if you hydrate them before you cook them they make amazing hash browns and fried taters, it’s like the dehydrating process allows them to crisp up on the outside yet stay soft on the inside. They remind me of those deep fried home fries restaurants have (that are amazing smothered in green chili and cheese).

    Directions For Dehydrated Potatoes

    1. Fill a pan large enough to cover all your potatoes and bring it to a boil. If you need to you can do this in batches depending on how many potatoes you have.

    2. While your water is boiling get those potatoes scrubbed up.

    3. Boil your potatoes until they are fork tender (you should be able to stick a fork in easily) about 15 minutes depending on pan size and size of your taters. You want your potatoes to keep their shape and you don’t want mash, so you need to be somewhere in between.

    4. Get your potatoes cooled off. I fill up my sink with cold water and ice. You could also run cold water over them and store them in your refrigerator until they have cooled off. However you do it they need to be completely cool as this is what keeps them from turning brown.

    5. Peel your potatoes and dice, slice or grate your potatoes. Whatever you do just make sure your potatoes are uniform. Fill your dehydrator trays.

    6. Set your dehydrator to 135 degrees and dehydrate until dried thoroughly. Potatoes are dry when they are translucent, can be snapped with ease (may not work for diced) and are no longer “chewy”. I only filled 3 trays my first time and my potatoes were finished in 5 hours.

    To Rehydrate Dehydrated Potatoes

    Cover desired amount of dehydrated potatoes with boiling water, just enough water to cover them so you don’t have a lot of extra water. Let sit in boiling water for approximately 15 minutes.

    How do you make dried potatoes?
    Blanch potatoes before dehydrating – super important!!
    1. Strain potatoes or scoop out with a big slotted spoon.
    2. Lay slices out on dehydrator screen so they are not overlapping.
    3. Place in dehydrator and dry at 125° F/52° C for 8 to 10 hours.
    4. Allow to cool and store in a large container where they will not be crushed.
