Is Deep Frying Dehydrated Potatoes Recommended?

Q:

Is deep frying dehydrated potato slices recommended? Are there recipes available?

A:

Fresh potatoes are about 80% water. Dehydrated slices have the water taken out. If you fry without re-hydrating, the slices will be crispy and crunchy, but not good. Trust me, I have tried it before.
