Dehydrating sweet potatoes are so easy to make. I enjoy having them on hand to use for snacks, soups, and more. Here I am going to take you step by step on how to correctly dehydrate sweet potatoes.

Before you begin prepping your potatoes, turn on your dehydrator and set your temperature to 125 degrees.

Step One

You always want to start off by washing your potatoes well. Can you leave the skin on? I prefer skins to be removed when I dehydrate my sweet potatoes.

Using my mandoline I slice my sweet potatoes as thin as I can. Be sure when using a mandoline, that you use some cut resistant gloves. These gloves will save your fingers, and well worth the small investment.

Step Two

Place your potatoes in a pot and cook them until tender. Keep a close eye on them, you don’t want to cook them to where they are falling apart. I like to add a bit of salt to the water since I eat these like chips.

Once they are cooked, rinse them off and place them on your dehydrator trays. You can add some salt or any seasoning you may like at this point.

You can see how thinly I slice these.

Step Three

Place your trays in the dehydrator and let it do its thing. It is just that easy!! For those that like a time, they take anywhere from 12-15 hours depending on how they are cut up. The thinner they are the quicker they will dry.

Potatoes are properly dehydrated when they are hard. They will bend, but with force, you should be able to break them in half.

Be sure to condition your potatoes. If you need to know what that means check out my video. Once they are properly dried, place them in an airtight container.

Now you can store your dehydrated sweet potatoes on the shelf! They will last for many years to come!
