Default Inca Style Dehydrated Potatoes

The Incas had an interesting way of dehydrating potatoes. Small potatoes were placed outside on the ground at high elevations to freeze during the night. The next morning the potatoes would be gathered into piles. The men and women would stomp on them which would cause the water to squirt out. When they wanted to use the dehydrated potatoes they would just add water.

Hi, this plate is still common here in Peru, it's called "carapulcra" If yo go to google.com.pe you will find lot's of infos on theses dry potatoes so easy to make in your backyard and it can last for years if not decennys. At the root of Inka and pre-Inka culture was this fascination for stroring food and seeds for many years for all their population in case of troubled times.
And this dry potato Carapulcra is so tasty, one of my favorite plate.
