Make Your Own Dehydrated Potatoes

I just had a mix of red and yukon potatoes  (5 lb).

Well I decided to take on the dreaded task of dehydrating some potatoes and hope that they turn out.  I started with washing the potatoes, then put them through my food processor.

Bring large pot of water to a boil, immerse potatoes in bring back to a boil and blanche for 8 minutes. Take out and place immediately in a bowl of ice cold water (it works best with a metal basket or colander). Place a single layer on towel and blot dry. Place on dehydrator trays and let process for 24 hours.


  1. Love your blog! - i'm also from kansas (southeastern kansas) and stumbled upon your blog while searching for "make your own rice mixes" and "foodstorage" - i love to preserve and can as well - getting excited about getting the garden started. i'll check back to see how your blog is going

  2. I curious about cooking with them. Can you give me some ideas?

    1. Wow, I didn't fall off the face of the earth, I just totally missed your question. You can use them like you would any box of scalloped potatoes, potatoes au gratin or add them to hamburger and onions and peppers. You do need to use more liquid than with fresh potatoes.
