My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

Recipe to Make Potato Starch

I often buy potato starch because I add it to recipes when making a gluten-free batter. It just makes the batter a little bit lighter. I was researching what to do with the 100 pounds of potatoes I bought recently when they were on sale for .99 cents per 10-pound bag (!!!) and found these instructions:
  1. Peel and grate raw potatoes.
  2. Place the potatoes in a double layer of cheesecloth and squeeze the liquid from the potatoes into a bowl.
  3. Let the liquid sit for a little while.
  4. Carefully pour off the accumulated water into another bowl (to be used as added liquid in other recipes).
  5. The remaining potato stuff in the first bowl is potato starch!

I need to get some more cheesecloth, then I'll be trying this. Has anyone reading tried this?

Cool thanks! It's hard to find potato starch where I live so I will definitely try this in the future!
