10 medium potatoes made 1 large tray*


  1. Cut potatoes, and put them in a pot, and boil. 
  2. Cook until potatoes are cooked clear through
  3. Mash the potatoes
  4. Line the tray with parchment or silicone mats. 
  5. Spread potatoes evenly over the tray being careful to not overfill trays. 
  6. Add dividers in desired portions
  7. Pre-Freeze
  8. Freeze dry
  9. Store appropriately. (See Tips & Tricks for storage help)

Cycle Time: 

My Cycle time in a mixed load Large Freeze Dryer with a Premier Pump was 25 hours.


Add water stir, let sit, stir, add water, stir, let sit, stir until you reach desired consistency. May want to re-whip them if you want them to be perfectly smooth.


* Large Tray = 8 Cups/tray   Medium = 6 Cups/Tray   Small = 4 Cups/Tray

Cycle times & rehydration for reference only. Your results may vary.
