Potatoes are one of those staple foods that is good to have on hand, but can be a pain to store. As a bargain shopper, I used to fall into the trap of buying bulk potatoes, when they were on sale, and then I would be frustrated a month later when they were going bad an we hadn’t eaten them all.
Dehydrating potatoes is my favorite way to store mass amounts of potatoes. They do not go bad, and they do not take up a ton of shelf or freezer space.
Step One: Thoroughly wash potatoes in water and vinegar.
Step 2: Slice potatoes in thin slivers or circles. Place in a glass or plastic bowl.
Step 3: Soak potatoes in lemon juice OR Citric Acid OR salt for 2 hours. This step helps ensure the potatoes are crisp and do not brown during dehydrating.
Step 4: Place potatoes on your dehydrator trays and dehydrate for around six to 8 hours. When they are done place them in an airtight container and store in a cupboard until use.
