6 large Idaho potatoes, peeled and grated 2 eggs 2 Tablespoons flour 1 teaspoon salt Pepper to taste 1 small onion, grated 1 carrot, peeled and grated teaspoon baking powder Oil for frying
Drain potatoes thoroughly. Mix all ingredients together. Drop by the tablespoon full into inch of hot oil in a frying pan. Fry until browned on both sides, turning only once so potatoes do not get soggy.
After most of the meat has been stripped from the bones, add the carcass to a stock pot with the carrot, onion and celery. (For a darker stock, you can roast the seasoning vegetables in advance and leave the peel on the onion).
1 small cheese pumpkin (or other dense variety) 6 cups sugar 8 cups water
Peel the pumpkin, scoop out the seeds and the stringy membrane that holds them in. Cut into 1 inch sized cubes. In a large, heavy pot add 1 cups of sugar and 2 cups of water for each 4 cups of pumpkin. When the sugar is dissolved, add the pumpkin, bring to a boil and then reduce to a low simmer. Cook uncovered until the liquid has dissolved and the pumpkin is reduced to jam.
