Drying Potatoes

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Here’s a little clip of me using the handy-dandy mandoline to slice a wee potato. The uniform, thin slices vastly improved drying time compared to last year.

Drying the slices takes around 1.5–2 hours at 215˚, depending on the type of cookie sheet and the oven rack placement. It took probably around six hours to turn approximately five pounds of potatoes to one gallon of dehydrated potato slices.
