|MUTTI'S POTATO PANCAKE|
My own twist of her potato pancake
Danke mutti! Your memory lives on!
In the meantime my dear friends, family, co-blogger and followers, this is my twist of mutti's potato pancake.
4 large white thin skin potatoes
Sliced thinly about 1/8" in a mandoline (be very careful in using the mandoline and follow the instruction that came with it).
Kosher salt/1 tablespoonful
2 tablespoons all purpose flour/or potato flour
1 beaten egg
Mix everything in a bowl, and in the meantime, heat some vegetable oil in pan and let the oil come to about 1/4 of an inch in the pan. The oil must be steaming hot.
Put together 3-4 pieces of the potato slices doing a free form kind of a thing, like a shape of a star and put in the hot oil until brown and crispy and flip on the other side and do the same thing. Tip: wait for the sides to brown before turning each piece over. DO NOT crowd them, do 3 or 4 at a time so as not to steam them. Drain on paper towel and set aside.
Sugared apples/To Serve With Potato Pancake
2 cooking apples cut in thin wedges
2 tablespoons sugar
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons butter
A squeeze of 1/2 a lemon
Do this on the same pan but make sure you remove the oil, add the butter, apples, sugar, salt, lemon juice. Stir to mix until the apples carmelizes. Make sure the apples do not get all mushy.
