Default Dehydrating Potatoes

Used to make soups or stew with other vegetables. They keep forever at room temperature.

Some Red Pontiac potatoes were dehydrated into a powder for long term storage. The potatoes were blended into a slurry of water and nixtamalized corn (to inhibit the slurry from sticking to the pan when dehydrating). Dehydration was about ten hours set at 125F/52C. The dried product was blended into a powder and stored in 250 ml canning jars. The slurry\powdering aspect saves much labour as opposed to the typical process used to dehydrate. The process is applicable to almost any product.
