Potatoes Harvested

We dug the potatoes yesterday.  Rita said that they need to be dug before frost otherwise they'll get sugary, and frost was forecast for last night - and indeed we did get frost!  So our timing was just perfect.  We have eaten most of the reds already with probably one or two meals left.  We yielded 95 pounds of Norkota (russets) and Kennebec!

I plan to freeze some of the russets as french fries.  I found this info online somewhere and the kids LOVED them, so I plan to do more.  Here's what I did:

Peeled potatoes and cut into french fries.
Boil potatoes in salt water until just about done.
Dry thoroughly and freeze on cookie sheets.  Transfer to freezer bags.
To bake:  toss fries with one to two tablespoons of oil and bake on a cookie sheet for 25 minutes at 425.
