Break New Ground....Build More Beds.....Get More Pots Growing

Page 2 of 5  


Sauteed cubed potatoes? Sounds like what we called home fries at the cafe. Was primarily for breakfast. Potatoes cut into little cubes and sauteed with onions, bell peppers, and salt/pepper for extra taste/flavor.

Thanks to you and all the others who have given me lots to go on. I think I now have enough to work from after all the wonderful posts.
The ones I get here for my monthly breakfast probalby don't have the egg or onions added and I suspect that they may have been rinsed to get some of the starch out and then compressed. They are served with Avocado, sour cream, smoked salmon and a Chilli sauce.

A trick that a friend of mine used, was to slice the frites (which ever way) and then soak them in clean water for an hour or so. This allowed them to sponge up more water and make them crispier when they were fried. Of course, I eat oven fries now. Usually large fries, rubbed with oil oil, and baked at about 400 F (about 200 C) until brown (40 min. to an hour), turning at least once to ensure even browning. I incorporate several of them into my morning omelet.
Later,

Duh....this must be my dim day. I don't see how higher water content would make them "crispier when they were fried" Straight question.

Home Fries are potatoes that have been boiled and then cubed into 1/2 inch chunks. They are then fried in butter and/or oil with minced onions and seasoned with salt and pepper.
Hash Browns are raw potatoes that are shredded and fried in oil, seasoned at the table.
Sometimes for supper we had fried potatoes. Mom would pare out the eyes of several poatoes and slice them thin (skin on) with a mandoline. They were then fried in a small ammount of oil with minced onion.
All were fried until the potatoes were brown and crisp on the outside. Variations on a theme. We also occasionally had potato pankcakes as above.

Common theme...ya' gotta have the onions with, eh?
When you are saying potato pancakes, are you talkin' bout what we have, which is mashed potatoes, with onion mixed in of course, and patted out thin and fried?
Oh, man....some good lovin' with all the above.

Nearly every morning and don't call me Shirley. Of course I use egg substitute, low fat cheese, smoked, olives and salsa, with the frites fried in canola oil with garlic. That's if I have time. If not it is usually last-night's salad stuffed in a tortilla (meat, cheese optional) with salsa.
The water causes the cells to distend and when they fry they are crunchier. The water left when the neighborhood went to 212 F (100 C).

Couldn't find the original post on this. A few thoughts:
What, no onion?!
One of the Cuisinart discs is perfect for shredding. A lot easier on the knuckles (ouch!).

How do you prepare your hashbrowns for freezing? I've always cooked mine fresh, never thought to freeze..........
Anyway, interested in your recipe and all, if you don't mind sharing!

If you talk to the typical SUV driver, he would rather give up his gun (a big <gasp> from red-state america) rather than give up his SUV. I've talked directly with them, and straight from the horses mouth: "I just couldn't live without my SUV...yea I know it takes a lot of gas but I just love it. Those other cars are just too darn small."
If rural and suburban politicians want votes, then they better keep the gas prices low. And even though liberals are in charge of congress theres an aweful lot of members of congress on both sides who have voters to appease.

Not all Democrats are liberals. Not all SUV owners are heartless.
I have an SUV. I do love it, but it's because I'm disabled and it is easy for me to get into and out of. It is also paid in full since the day I bought it. It's over ten years old and I only have 68,000 miles on it. Stop making blanket statements and you'll make a lot more sense to the intells.
I can easily say I've used far less gasoline than you in the last ten years (even if you have a hybrid), so calm down.

Specific statements: Automobiles made by non-USA companies in some cases have exceeded 30 mpg over 2 decades ago. All automobile companies have since succeeded in making more energy (horsepower) from comparatively larger engines. Yet, put them in heavier and heavier vehicles (SUVs for instance). Fact: more weight the vehicle, the more HP is needed to accelerate and fight the wind during normal cruising. Fact: the larger the "sail", the wind resistance while in motion, the more HP is needed to keep that vehicle at that speed. Fact: the larger the radius or circumferance of a wheel or tire, the more difficult it is to turn that wheel (turning resistance). Yet, moved from 12/13/14" tires to 18 and 20" tires. Fact: consumers picked SUVs for their transportation, which involves larger engine, heavier weight, more wind resistance, more acceleration resistance, larger tires/wheels in the past decade.
If you're disabled, you don't have much of choice in such a vehicle for your personal transportation.
Fact: Congress is considering legislation to demand 35 mpg or better for SUVs by 2020. Crock. Could be done now with mods of current ones including engine size, tire/wheels size, and body downsizing. We don't need a 5000 lb vehicle that can do 0-60 in less than 5 seconds.
The biggest fix was mentioned by a TV show about the small ice age. Population. 8 billion is the planet limit under ideal conditions at all times, 2 billion is suggested if we have another one. You probably don't see the association. Less people, less cars, less CO, same amount of oil available. Dave

I agree with every word you said. Absolutely I have been yelling for over two decades that we should have zero population growth. Two children to replace two parents. I absolutely see the association, and I'm also a liberal! Surprise!
I am old enough to remember alternate day gas purchase, also the long lines and hour wait time to buy gasoline in the 70s. We had plenty of vehicles after that to choose from with excellent gas mileage. Speed limits on national highways was lowered to save gas. We've had the technology for decades, but big fat liars like Bushie and his oil buddies want us to assure record profits at their buddies oil refinery(s). For the last three years oil companies have had RECORD profits. Well, duh. Gas costs are three times as much at the pump. It's silly, really.
When my SUV is finished I will replace it with a much more efficient model car. My husband has a Honda Accord. Back in the 70s they got 50 mpg, now he's lucky if he gets 22. Any reason for that other than zoom zoom zoom? Resounding NO.
We agree.

The American obssession with large cars is something I've always considered a bit odd (not being American and living in a country as big as the continental US and with far worse road conditions and much higher prices for petrol). If my country can manage with small cars, I always wonder why Americans can't.
I remember seeing an interview of a number of Americans on just this topic. One black chap was standing next to his Suburban and saying, "I'm a big man so I need a big car". It was a case of an unrealistic self image. He wasn't a big man, he was not tall, he was just fat. If he'd last about 50+ lb of blubber he would have fitted into a small European car.

But how can they do that with the price climbing all over the world? The prices for petrol are very low in the US by way of comparison with the rest of the western world.

I'm very glad you posted this commentary. I have been saying this for years. I have family in Italy and gasoline there has been 3 UDS for a litre! Their cars are not these huge land yachts and you are correct with your assertion that fatness is run amuck in America.
No, I am not a self-hating American, but when I compare us with other nations in Europe (for example), we are fat, out of control with alcohol and drugs, insane government and it's woefully inadequate presidential administration. People in Europe must think we are the dumbest nation on earth for simply re-electing the bafoon as our leader.
All the time I wait for sighs of the downturn and eventually America will be a third world nation. We have deluded thinking when we say we are the wealthiest nation on the planet. As far as I know, we are one of the most in DEBT nation in the planet. I've read several reports saying the average credit card debt in the U.S. is anywhere from 5 to 11 thousand dollars!
Eh, it's too early in the morning to be so worked up.
