    Quote:How do you go about dehydrating them? Sometime mid-summer my oh-so-amazing wife is going to buy me an Excalibur dehydrator--so I'm planning much of my garden on what I can dehydrate. How thin do you slice the sweet potatoes? (BTW, thanks so much for mentioning this...I wouldn't have never have thought about dehydrating Sweet Potatoes if you hadn't mentioned it).

    We are growing them this year for our chickens, looks like a good vegetable source for winter feeding.
    I bought my seeds from Baker Creek Seeds http://rareseeds.com
    They sell in small quantities, I'm not planting an acre of Mangles.. [​IMG]
