Dehydrating yam and potatoes

HI EVERYONE:) Lately I’ve been inspired to use my dehydrator and have brought it into work(a daycare) to make a few fun snacks with the kids.

At home my boyfriend has an OBSESSION with potato chips and this has worn off on ME(the ex health nut) ugh! So I’ve been experimenting with healthy alternatives.

Meet purple yams, orange yams and a plain old russet potato. I did grow potatoes but I bought these ones ๐Ÿ™ˆ All for the cheap price of $1.28. Where I live we have tons of ‘asian markets’ which are dirt cheap and local ๐Ÿ™Œ

First get choppin’! I spent about 45 minutes cutting these bad guys up. Keep in mind knife skills are not strong. Ideally you could use a food processor or one of those fancy choppers but this girl cannot stand having tooo many kitchen gadgets.

I sprinkled salt, set the dehydrator’s temperarure to 125 degrees and left them overnight for 12 hours. AND LOOK!

Ok they are a bit thick(hard on my teeth) but they are soo flavourful! Next time I’d make them much thinner but besides that they are perfect.

Do you dehydrate food? What do you make? Any ideas for me? I’d love to hear from you!๐Ÿ˜˜

  1. Buy a mandoline. They’re about $10 at a big box store. I don’t like gadgets either, but it’s the best ten bucks I ever spent. (It fits in a standard kitchen drawer). If only dehydrators were so small and cost $10… these look yummy.

  2. This is awesome! And i definitely agree with the above comment. Mandolins are the bomb. We don’t like too many kitchen gadgets either however they are fantastic and make it so much quicker!
