Taro Leaves and Roots

Today I am dehydrating taro root and leaves.  First I have peeled then sliced the taro root into 1/4 inch slices, then gently boiled them.  As you can see from the photo, I didn't do a very good job of keeping them intact, but they are now dehydrating so they should be okay (although I'm not sure how they will taste or work in recipes later).  The leaves have been boiled for almost an hour (50 minutes) to make sure the "itchy" toxin is gone (I hope), and they are also now dehydrating.
