Potato Pancakes

We grew our own potatoes on the small farm in New Hampshire where I was raised. These pancakes are very good served with any pork dish.

    I didn't peel the potatoes and used the coarse side of the grater because it is faster. They turned out fine.

    These pancakes are crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside and very tasty. I'm throwing out my old recipe!
