Bosch Continuous-Feed Slicer-Shredder

Not in current production, these slicer-shredders are attachments for your Bosch Universal Mixer. They use the same disks as their current slicer-shredder attachment. In the older literature these were called extrusion shredders.

Fried Potatoes

Peel raw potatoes. Wash in cold water. Slice crosswise into thin slices. Drain.

Heat 2 heaping or more Tablespoons shortening in frying pan. Add potatoes. When hot, season with salt and pepper. Cover pan closely. Let potatoes steam until partially done, then remove lid and permit to brown. Stir so they will brown evenly.

Chopped onion may be added the last five minutes, if desired.

In loving memory of my mother, Ruby Stewart
(She made the best fried potatoes!!!)

Poke Salad

I also remember Mommie fixing Poke Salad. You go out in the garden or woods and pick the poke. Wash and cook poke salad in bacon grease. Add a couple of eggs when cooking. Cook until tender; add salt and pepper.

(Note: Poke contains compounds known to be toxic to mammals. Please do your own research on the subject of whether eating poke is right for you. A starting place for you may be this Wikipedia article.)
