Peeled – and cored – potatoes…..

December 7, 2011



The beloved said to me, “Why don’t we use the apple corer on the potatoes?” Our apple corer, peels cores and cuts apples  into spirals and is a thing of wonder. I took it into Arlo’s  class at school when they were making apple jelly and all the kids wanted a go and they wanted to eat the apples  – as well as the skin that was peeled off.  So I peeled and cored a potato. It had to be an even shape – nothing too bulbous or lopsided. The resulting spirals and the “cores”  – solid cylinders of potato – were put in a glass ovenproof dish with some smoked paprika,  salt and a little cream left over from the fudge making – it was just the right side of ok to eat –  and put in a medium oven for about an hour. Delicious!  Next time I’m going to do more potatoes and put the cores in one dish and the spirals in another and cook them separately.
