Immediately remove blanched potatoes from the heat and plunge them into an ice bath to cool.
Once the potatoes have cooled, remove them from the ice bath and spread them in a single layer on the racks of your dehydrator.

Cool the potatoes at room temperature for 30-45 minutes before transferring to a clean airtight container for storage.
