Dehydrated potatoes

I picked up a packet of these a couple of weeks ago, and finally got around to trying them this morning.

Rehydrated 1/2 packet in a little boiling water, let sit 10 minutes, drained and cooked as I would frozen hash browns.

Cracked a couple of eggs in there, plenty of salt and pepper....delicious, not distinguishable from frozen potatoes, substantial meal on the road, without the mess of shredding a fresh potato or trying to carry bulky frozen ones in my tiny frig.

Not completely preservative free, but a relatively short ingredient list, pretty darned tasty...and shelf stable. I like.

I will avoid the varieties with extra flavorings, but I think there is one of these that includes dehydrated onion, which I may try.

We have become fans of dehydrated foods. Usually preserveative free. For us, it's a space saving option! We can make mashed potatoes that rival the real deal using only hot water to rehydrate, and of course butter and milk.
We have 6 full-time mouths to feed on the road so anything that saves water and space is great!
Now let's discuss powdered milk!

So is the process similar to dehydrated fruit. As the dehydrated fruit is very tasty if not sometimes a little too sugary.(the kind in the bulk bins not pre-packed)

Ore-Ida makes some also in a small cardboard milk like carton. Just add water, let set, and cook. It feeds four easily with other food.

I keep powdered milk both in the Interstate and at home.

If you are ever in the vicinity of an Amish grocer, they stock a phenomenal amount of dehydrated everything, tho I am not a fan of dried vegetables I do like dried fruits.

I didnít see the cartons of potatoes where I bought this packet at WalMart, but am going to look around at what else is out there.

1/2 packet was perfect for me, with a couple of jumbo eggs scrambled in at the end.

Yum. I am pleased.

In my other camping life I go wilderness canoeing up in the BWCA (done 22 trips). Used to be one was forced to pay exorbitant amounts for backpacking dehydrated meals or foods which were packaged inappropriately for wilderness area regulations.

In the past 5 to 10 years there has been a virtual explosion in wilderness travel compatible foods, right on the grocery store shelves. The ONLY thing we haven't found is a suitable tasty tomato paste in powdered form. (Cans are not allowed in wilderness areas). Our menus have become outstanding as we honed our shopping skills.

Dzn you might consider trying the tomato paste in a tube. Excellent taste, lots of companies to choose from and about the size of a toothpaste tube. if that's permissible in the wilderness areas it is so easy to roll up the empty tube and bring home.

I made the mistake of putting some crushed tomatoes in a triple heavy duty plastic baggies but of course the acidity of the tomatoes still ate through the plastic and caused a little leak.

That would be allowed. Thanks, I'll hunt it down.

Sams Club carries a large milk carton container of the hash browns. They are great to add to other foods, le soups, too.

You can probably find all manner of dehydrated potato products in any grocery store, from the boxed and flavored items to plain old, unadulterated instant mashed potatoes.
