Potatoes have always been a pretty easy plant for me to grow. Canned Potatoes and Recipes, a new eBook, will help you process all those potatoes much easier. One year, I went to our local produce market, Frog Pond, and they had 50 lb. bags of potato seed for FREE! Yes, I said FREE! They wanted to get rid of them and they were damp. In fact, when I brought the bag home in my friend’s car, it stunk it up a bit. That didn’t matter in the least, because I planted all of them and we had the biggest crop of potatoes I ever saw. All I had room for in the garden that year was green beans, tomatoes and the potatoes. But who cares? I was able to store them in a big box covered with newspaper right in my pantry. I had to check them daily, and I would open the box and let it set open for a few hours. If you don’t do that, moisture will accumulate due to the humidity and being in a closed up box. That is why I never keep vegetables or fruits in plastic. Nothing ruins it faster than being closed up in a plastic bag or container.
So when you have a daily harvest of potatoes coming every day, what do you do with all of them? You can store them fresh and eat them through the winter. Of course, canning some of them would be a good option too. Then you’d have some ready to fix without the fuss of waiting for them to cook first. They are basically prepared and all you have to do is to make the recipe you need them for. Fast food! Canning potatoes is not that hard to do and actually, if you have never canned before, it is a good vegetable to start with. Remember you will need a pressure canner, NOT a pressure cooker……….there is a big difference!
As you can imagine, with a good crop of potatoes, you can be overrun with them at harvest time. There are so many ways to use them. In my own eBooks I have put down many of my old standby recipes. I thought I’d seen them all until I bought a new cook book for my kindle called Canned Potatoes and Recipes by Pamela K. Ritter. She has more delicious recipes for using the canned potatoes that I have never had before. So I am planning on trying these recipes when the weather turns cooler and I have time to cook more. Right now, I am mostly grilling or using my new pressure cooker.
Not only does she tell you how to can the potatoes in this book, but gives the recipes for these other mouthwatering dishes, such as: Potato and Cabbage Soup, Pierogie Casserole, Fried Potatoes With Corn, Canned Red Potatoes with Garlic and Green Bean Soup, etc. Well, you get the idea.
