(An American Recipe.)
Choose potatoes of uniform size, wash and scrub them, but do not break the skin. Put them in a pan of boiling water, and boil them until they feel slightly hard in the centre Drain off the water. Cover the potatoes with a clean cloth, and leave them on the side of the stove for five minutes.
Next skin them and cut them in slices about three-quarters of an inch thick. Melt about three ounces of good dripping in a frying-pan. When a bluish smoke rises from it, put in the slices of potato, a few at a time, and fry them a golden brown, turning them occasionally. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper, and serve in a hot dish.
N.B. - Sweet potatoes may now be bought at most large stores and first-class greengrocers', and are very delicious.
