Chopping potatoes quickly for freeze drying

We found that the Vidalia Chop Wizard cut the potatoes to the perfect size for freeze drying. Before using the chopper, we cleaned the potatoes (of course), then sliced the them into ~1/2 inch pieces. The best part is that the potato chunks are now perfectly consistent, which will help them freeze dry evenly.

We got this chopper from Amazon:

Place the ~1/2-inch potato slices into the chopper

Here you can see that we got about 2 cups from this potato.

Toss the chopped pieces into water to keep them from going brown.
