I bought a bunch of potatoes for a friend visiting, and she only ate 2. Now I have 4 left. Is there anything I can do with them sans dehydrator?
Any help appreciated? This will keep me from making vegetarian massaman curry COOOKED!

maybe putting some olive oil and sea salt, then pop them in the dehydrator? :confused:

also, what about juicing them with some other veggies and a couple of fruits?

I prepared Alyssa's salt and vinegar chips recipe .. and liked it! For some reason, the salt didn't stick very well to the chips, so next time I'll add sea salt to the potatoes at the end of the vinegar soak .. and let soak more before I pop them in the dehydrator. They were nice and crispy! However, I wonder about eating raw (dehydrated raw in this case) potatoes. They just seem wierd to eat raw, and I wonder how well our digestive system handles it.

soak them in water to remove the starchiness, then you can spiralize them and make noodles for soup, or you can slice and make potato chips, or you can shread and mix with squash and spices and make patties with them

Thanks for all the great suggestions! :D
I don't have a dehydrator, so looks like my only option could be making "noodles" for a soup.
But keep the suggestions coming!

How long do you soak the potato?

I've heard that of some reason you should just eat sweetpotato when it comes to raw potato. But, then again, thats only what I've heard.
Another thing. The oliveoil that figures in alot of recipes, is this of some special kind. I don't know alot about oils and their rawness but do you mean coldpressed oliveoil?

yes cold pressed olive oil (extra virgin is better)

Rhio has a really good German potato salad recipe in her recipe book. I took it to a church dinner and everyone there loved it, got seconds, and asked me for the recipe.

Can you share the recipe?

Can you share the recipe?
Sure, I'll type it in when I get home. I'm at work right now and I don't have the book with me.

oh cool RP never thought of soaking them to remove starchiness!
05-12-2006, 08:46 AM
how long do you soak them for?
2 potatos in water - do you skin them and put them in there whole?
I would think if I were to put them in sliced up in cubes they'll get all mushy after a while.

You would not get anywhere just soaking the whole potato or even peeling and soaking it.
You would need to spiralize them or slice them or whatever first, and then soak them (maybe with a bit of sea salt). This would expose more surface area for starch to be taken from.
I am waiting for Rhio's recipe too!

My mom and daughter like to eat them sliced, soaked in cold water, drained and then eaten with some salt on them. This doesn't taste good at all to me! Too starchy. But they love it!

Soak the potatoes, then slice into cubes for potato salad. Mix with red pepper, celery or any other veggies you'd put in potato salad, then add paprika and almond mayo or cashew mayo. This is so yummy!
