    I've just always sliced ( or small cubes) then steamed a batch for 6 mins and then cooled in cold water, patted dry with a tea towel and then dehydrated. Came out great each time

    and the commercially frozen potatoes I just dump on the trays and then they dry up perfect

    Beings I had all those potatoes.
    I thought dehydrating would be the best bet, but not on lack of sleep right now.
    Thank you all for all the wonderful information.
    Will try again next week after Thanksgiving.
    After I have more than a couple of hours here, couple hours there of sleep.

    I've never blanched celery either. Just cut to the size I want and put them in.

    I should have a lot of zucchini on two, but had to put them away for now so I don't look like a weirdo. CPS coming over to give a class to us about children. Looking around to see what else is weird.
