Mother Earth News: Dehydrating Cubed Potatoes

by Texas Homesteader ~

D’ya ever eyeball that big honkin’ bag of potatoes, compare the price to that small overly-expensive bag of potatoes and have a hard time making the economics make sense?  Me too!! As empty nesters there are only 2 of us here in our household these days, but dang it just doesn’t make sense to pay more per pound for a small bag of potatoes.

So I’ve been buying that big bag & dehydrating the excess potatoes for pantry storage.  I’ve shredded them for dehydrated hash browns and we love them this way, but now I want to cube them up like I’d use in a stew and although there’s one simple important thing you must do before successfully dehydrating them – it’s super easy to do!  I recently wrote about it for Mother Earth News, check it out.

      It works beautifully Angelina, and since they’re dehydrated it takes no additional energy to store them in the pantry. Gotta love it! ~TxH~

    I do the same as Lana, only I boil my potatoes for 3-5 minutes. I do the same for making French Fries, steak fries, etc.
    I think best tasting fried potatoes is to fry them in bacon grease. I save all my bacon fat, store in container and put in freezer for later use.

      I’d like to try making french fries for the freezer. And you’re right Colleen, bacon grease is mandatory! ~TxH~

    My dehydrator escaped my house when one of my kids moved out and then she gave it to her roommate! Kids! I peel and cube and boil for 8-10 minutes. Then I pour them out onto a baking sheet to cool. After they are cool I freeze them in portions for one meal. Browned up in some fat in a skillet, they are delicious and you cannot tell at all that they have been frozen.

      I’m *SO* gonna try this Lana. I’ve not been successful with freezing potatoes other than mashed potatoes (which I’ve done often) I’d love to have frying potatoes as close as my freezer! ~TxH~
