Unemployed and eating out of food storage, we finally opened a can of these potatoes. They're fantastic! We did discover that we prefer soaking them longer than suggested. We put them in water for a few hours and then put the potatoes and water in a sealed jar. Two days later, still looking fresh, we dumped the jar in a pan, added some onions and dried green peppers, and browned it into the best home fries we've ever made.

Budget Saver!

Food prices have sky-rocketed along with everything else. Few among us can afford to turn a blind eye to waste. Having been forced to toss expensive mealy potatoes that went moldy less than a week after purchase on too many occasions, I began looking for a better option. These potatoes are it! I have made some of the best potato soup ever to come from my kitchen using these instead of fresh. BTW, this recipe was lower fat/calorie than my usual. I used the butter powder, putting 1/2 cup in with about 8 ounces of the dices, a couple of vegetable bouillon cubes and just enough water to cover by about 1 1/2 inches. Let it come to a boil, then high simmer for about an hour, covered. Turn off the heat and let it sit. The starches will thicken the soup as it cools. Add enough milk to thin to desired consistency No mixing a roux, no lumps, just creamy potato goodness! Perfect with a slab of hot cornbread!

Super easy!

I've had good results from quick potato salad in the past made with instant mashed potatoes, so decided to give the dices a try for the same. They were sooooo easy. No peeling or cutting. I also boiled the egg along with the potatoes, so clean up was a snap. Since the dice size is uniform they cook evenly without any being overdone and mushy. This made really great potato salad. I'll be ordering these again as a staple to keep in my pantry.

Another winner

These potato dices are great! I've found it is best way to rehydrate them is to soak them overnight. I also soak some onions and the next morning everything is ready for pan fried potatoes.

So nice to keep dehydrated potatoes around. No cleaning or peeling required and super fast to whip up a side dish. No worries that if my fresh potatoes go bad that I have to figure out what to do....I can always turn to my food storage and have potatoes on hand.
