Potato Cooking

From our two spud tubs we harvested approximately 60 potatoes
which gave us lots to make several recipes.

But which recipes should we try? 
Yes, I do have a cook book dedicated to potatoes.

We started by boiling some of the potatoes and having a taste test.

After mixing in all the ingredients, enjoying the fragrance of the cocoa,
we scooped the cookie dough on to the pan.

Slice the potatoes thinly and soak in water for a few minutes to help remove some of the starch.  Microwave for a few minutes and flip them over then microwave until they are brown and crisp.
