Dehydrating potatoes can be done by either using fresh potatoes, or you can cheat by using frozen (diced) hash browns, or grated hash browns – now that's easy!
Potatoes are everyone's favorites and I'll show you how they can be easily dehydrated from pre-cooked sliced potatoes!
TIP: if using frozen hash browns, drop the frozen unopened bag on
the kitchen counter-top a few times to break up any clumps.
If clumps persist, run the clump under cool running water for a few seconds – that should do the trick!
By the way, potatoes are loaded with a range of vitamins: vitamin A, vitamin C, and Choline, followed by Niacin, Thiamine, vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, and Betaine.
Trace amounts of vitamin K, and Folate. Minerals to be found in potatoes are Potassium, followed by Phosphorus, Magnesium, and Calcium. There are also trace amounts of Iron, Zinc, Manganese, Copper and Selenium. Potatoes contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids too.
Let's get busy dehydrating potatoes!
If using frozen hash brown potatoes, simply ignore steps 1, 2, and 3.

Lucky also wanted to share this with us:
"Well I did a batch yesterday and found they taste pretty good. However, if you don't place them in a air tight container with a moisture absorber (oxypack) they tend to get flimsy quickly if you live in a high humidity place like I do...
I am still working on perfecting this! If you eat them right away after a session of drying, they are pretty tasty ... the only thing I did was sliced the potatoes really thin and soaked them in apple cider vinegar for 12 hours. I did not rinse them but drained them, then laid them out on the mesh sheeting and sprinkled sea salt and dill weed onto them ...
Like I said, tasted pretty good but as far as keeping them for a long period, more steps will have to be made."
