A funny PCT story about potato flakes.  I used them (rarely) and one time I
prepared them but forgot that the water I used to reconstitute them had
been treated with iodine (this was in pre water filter days).  If any of
you remember your high school chemistry, you know what happened when the
iodine reacted with the starchy potatoes:

they turned blue!

It was a colorful meal.
