Dehydrating Mashed Sweet Potatoes


Other than just consuming my sweet potatoes baked this is one of our favorite ways to consume sweet potatoes other than maybe pie. I simply put the sweet potatoes in the oven and bake them. Then peel the potatoes and mash just like making mashed potatoes. I add apple juice if they need a little liquid and I add to also add cinnamon and maple syrup and then run my immersion blender through them. You do what your family likes to taste. Then I spread the mashed potatoes out on parchment paper on my dehydrator trays and dry like fruit leather only drier. At the end I take it off the parchment paper and let it finish drying to a point it can be broken into small pieces. 

The sweet potato pieces are in the jars in the above picture. You can easily take out small pieces and just let them melt in your mouth. We personally like to add them to our refrigerator oatmeal again. A great source of potassium. They can also be reconstituted as just plain mashed sweet potatoes or used in bread, pies and casseroles.

  1. How wonderful, so many creative ways to use sweet potatoes! I ordered some slips this year and spent a small fortune on them. The foliage took over my raised beds and I had such high hopes....went out this week to harvest and they were not worth bringing into the house :( They barely grew into carrot size. So disappointed.
