This is new territory for me! Dehydrated potatoes. More commonly known as Instant Potatoes.
If you don’t have a dry, dark, cool place to store food – dehydrating potatoes is a good option.
Wash potatoes and cut out any blemishes. Whether or not you peel potatoes is totally up to you.
Whether you shred or slice potatoes, place them in a bowl of water right away to prevent oxidation. Potatoes will start to turn brown very quickly! Blanch the potatoes by bringing a large pot of water to boil. Add potato slices or shredded potatoes to the water and resume boiling until slices are fork tender, about 4-6 minutes.
Lay slices out on the dehydrator screen so they are not overlapping. Shredded potatoes can overlap.
Potatoes will be translucent and crisp throughout – just like the potatoes in a box of scalloped potatoes.
