Another recipe from Jeeta’s Hutterite Community Cookbook is for Potato Pancakes, which takes an unexpected twist. Remember, these recipes are sized for a colony, not a household.
5 pounds grated potatoes 5 pounds flour
¾ cup grated onions ½ tsp pepper
5 eggs slightly beaten salad oil for frying
Grate potatoes and onions. Drain well. Combine potatoes, onions, eggs, flour, salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil ⅛ inch deep until hot but not smoking. For each pancake drop 3 Tbsp of dough at a time into the hot fat. Flatten with spatula. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain well on paper before serving.
