Either slice as you would potatoes or chop into dice no bigger 1cm, either way don't forget to blanch. I like both as you can rehydrate the slices and fry in butter or use the dice in a stew or make mash. :)

I do them the same as carrots - blanch, slice and dehydrate. They don't go as small as slices of carrots do when dried. A handful of both and a handful of dried spuds and some dried onions with a tin of stewing steak...add boiling water and cook for about 40 mins until the dried stuff has hydrated. Yummy stew!
