Potatoe, potato.

yukongoldpotatoRSo you have purchased a box of yummy potatoes like we did and you are looking for ways to preserve and serve the harvest here are a couple of things you can do:
~ You can use the potato peels for mulch/fertilizer.
~ My chickens like to munch on them as well.
~ Make potato pancakes and store them in the freezer for a handy meal, or side dish.
~ You can also make crispy potato peels.
Potato pancakes
Peel 4 potatoes, you can then shred them in a food processor or by hand. Slice 4 green onions and put in a bowl with the shredded potatoes. Sprinkle in some salt (or no-salt seasoning I like the big container from Costco) and pepper. Add 2 T. flour, and one egg (beaten) into the bowl. Mix well. Preheat a skillet to 350, spray the skillet with olive oil add mounds of mix and then flatten with a spatula. Cook till both sides are nice and brown, let cool quickly and add to a freezer bag and pop in the freezer. You will have a quick tasty meal just waiting for you.
Crispy Potato Peels
Put the peelings in a bowl; season with seasoned salt, pepper, and a little Ranch dressing; and toss. Bake, on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until they are crispy.
