Fruits and vegetables are important to keep every one of us healthy. However, there are people, especially the kids who are not attracted to eat vegetables. Dehydrating these vegetables is a great way to encourage kids to eat healthy foods. One of these is the potatoes.
Potatoes are filled with vitamins and minerals, which can nourish the body. They are good for the heart because they contain potassium and omega-three fatty acids. If you like to learn how to dehydrate potatoes, below are the simple steps to follow:
- Wash the potatoes. It is not necessary to choose the freshest since you can also choose frozen once.
- Peel them and put them into a bowl of water so that their color will not change. Slice them accordingly.
- Put them into a food dehydrator. Make sure that you will arrange them in a single layer and with appropriate space between them. In this way, all of them will dry evenly.
- Always follow the manufacturer’s manual on how to use the dehydrator. Some of them need to be rotated while others are not. In the end, just make sure that there is no presence of moisture in those potatoes.
Lastly, these can be great during breakfast. On the other hand, when you and the whole family go camping or picnic, you can bring and eat those fried potatoes. You just need to be a little creative and imaginative so that you can prepare great recipes with your dehydrator.
