DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the potatoes under cold water & pat dry -- cut away any bad spots You can peel them, but I prefer not to.
  • Peel the onion.
  • Thinly slice the potatoes & onion.
  • Add enough ice water to cover & let soak for about 15 minutes.
  • Over medium-high heat, melt the lard (or CRISCO) -- cast iron works best.
  • Drain the potatoes/onions & immediately add to the hot grease -- BE CAREFUL -- THE GREASE WILL SPLATTER!
  • Season as desired.
  • Cover & cook over med.-high heat until soft, stirring often.
  • If potatoes stick, add a little more lard/CRISCO.
