DIRECTIONS

  • Grate the raw potatoes real fine.
  • Add some baking soda so they don't turn brown.
  • Set aside so the water can come out.
  • Pour into a cotton-bag and squeeze until no more moisture comes out.
  • Catch the liquids that come out and save in bowl.
  • let sit so the starch can sink to the bottom.
  • Then put the raw potatoes back in another bowl.
  • Mash the boiled potatoes and add to the raw potatoes.
  • Now very careful and slowly pour the water out of the bowl and save the starch because you need to add it to the potatoe-mixture.
  • Add a little bit of salt and knead well.
  • Cut the bread in small dices and toast in some butter to a golden brown.
  • Form fist sized balls (form the balls with cold moist hands).
  • poke a hole in the middle and put some bread dices in the hole, close back up.
  • In a big pot with almost boiling water let them.
  • simmer for about 20 minutes Don't boil other than that you'll have Potato Soup.
