Grate two pounds of peeled potatoes and soak in cold water for at least a couple of hours. Strain the potatoes and dry them well, for example by wrapping in a tea towel and swinging them round your head. Do this outdoors. And don't blame me if you accidentally let go of a corner and decorate your garden with grated spuds. If you're chicken you could just pat them dry between sheets of kitchen paper. Put the potatoes in a large bowl and add a grated onion and plenty of freshly ground black pepper and sea salt. In a separate bowl, beat two eggs with two tablespoons ofwholemeal self raising flour. Mix the egg mixture into the potato mixture.
Cook spoonsful of the potato batter in a frying pan with hot butter or oil. Serve hot.
They taste fantastic, especially when made with home-grown potatoes and onions and home-produced eggs.
