i just threw some thinly sliced sweet potatoes in the dehydrator, i was wondering if anyone has experimented with this before and how long they left them in for the best results????

This is my plan of attack for tomorrow! I hope somebody will respond.
I do think that it might make a difference with whether or not you marinated or seasoned them etc. Did you end up marinating your sweet potatoes or are they just plain ole' sweet potatoes?

I had a failed attempt at this a couple of weeks ago. I marinated them in olive oil and a little nutritional yeast. They came out greasy and soft. Think I used too much oil and/or didn't slice thin enough (just got my mandolin slicer this weekend).
Will have to try again.
I think it is important to put the slices in water and salt for a few hours before you dehydrate. But maybe yours will turn out fine anyway :)

I usually dry mine over night - up to about 12 hrs. I have a batch of zucchini and acorn squash chips seasoned with garlic, cayenne and cumin drying right now...house smells yummy. I find if u put oil on them that can take longer. This batch is going on 15 hrs now.

I went to make sweet potato chips and discovered my naters were molding. Sniff, sniff. Oh well, next time.
How did yours turn out? Please tell. :)

soooo good and spicy!! I let them sit on the counter for a few hours in the oil and seasonings and unfortunately the salt drew out a lot of the water from the squash...so they came out really tiny...but yummy spicy :)

I've tried these several times. I make them "hot" with cayenne. They are a staple for me now...especially when I feel like having popcorn or something. I marinate them for a while in olive oil and this time I used lime juice, with some sea salt and cayenne. They are so yummy! Also the zucchini chips are outstanding. I made my own marinade for that using italian spices as well, with olive oil and chopped onion, garlic, basil, oregano that kind of stuff. I made them all together and dehydrated sweet potato/zucchini chips both for 17 hours or so. They are kind of chewy, but delicious anyways.

I've had luck with slicing them thin and then soaking in lemon and water for at least two hours. Then dehydrate them overnight. I love 'em!
