Here's the link in clickable form for the food saver stuff

www.foodsaver.com/accessories

If you have the foodsaver it's a great way to get out all of the air, but the silica gel is great if you don't have the foodsaver.

Peace and long life - Jules

Hi Yes, you are going to be a busy girl !!!
the foodsaver comes with a hose but not the canning jar sealers. Those have to be bought separately. I've included the link in the previous comment of mine.
They are relatively cheap and soooo worth it !!!
You attach the hose to your machine on one end and to the sealer cap on the other.
Fill your jar, place of a flat and then the sealer. (see the item on Foodsaver and you'll know what I mean) Then turn on the machine.
So easy and works great !!!

what a coincidence. I have a new dehydrator (never used) and a food saver (don't know if I have the can option on it though) AND I have older potatos. guess what I'm doing tonight? LOL

I do dehydrate my potatoes and the ones that are starting to get old (in my potato drawer) like this...
I store them in qt jars and use my FoodSaver to get the air out.. I use the wide mouth or regular lid sealers...

(sorry for the not clickable links...I don't know why I can not add a link, so you'll have to copy and paste to a new browser window)

This is a "prepper" site but with great ideas nonetheless. If you dry potatoes (and probably other veggies) silica gel is a great thing to buy to keep the moisture out. I bought some from a chemist here (drugstore) I suppose there and it keeps moisture out of things really well.

I guarantee you'll be on this site for ages checking things out
