The little I know of Eustace and Turtle Island is from Mountain Men on one of the channels.

I believe he would irritate the dogshit out of me.

You can dehydrate slices and hash browns, too! Slice or grate, boil for 3 minutes, shock with cold water and the dehydrate. Treat with lemon juice if you want to prvent darkening. We dehydrate 100# of 'taters a year.
