sweet potatoe chews

I'm bored at work, so I am surfing around and found this:

To dehydrate your potatoes, wash them and cut them into 1/4 inch slices. You don't even have to peel them unless you want to. Blanch the potatoes in a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes and then soak them in 1/2 cup lemon juice and 2 quarts cold water for about 45 minutes to keep them from oxidizing while they dry--the lemon juice also helps them retain their original color when you cook them. Dry your potato slices by whichever drying method you prefer until all the moisture is gone--they will be brittle when dry. Store your dried potatoes in heavy-duty plastic bags, or an airtight container, and keep away from direct light. To use your dried potatoes, soak them in an equal amount of water for 25 minutes. Cook as you would raw potatoes.

I'm gonna do this then try the smoker. Won't be til the weekend likely, but will try it!
