How to Make Flitch, Old Fashioned Potato Candy (Mark)
- Boil and peel potato. In a dish, mash potato smooth with a fork. Begin mixing in powdered sugar. Continue adding sugar and mixing until mixture is the consistency of dough. If desired, add a few drops of vanilla. Sprinkle a little powdered sugar on a cutting board, put the dough between 2 sheets of wax paper, and roll the mixture to a 1/4 inch thickness. Spread peanut butter atop the rolled mixture. Roll up the sheet, loosening it from the board with a knife as you roll. Cut into slices and serve.
- Note from Mark: the older and more leathery the potato, the better. DO NOT use new potatoes, they are WAY too watery.
- Note: Joanne made 12-19-18, with potato from store. She said a yellow potato, size would fit into a 1 cup measure. Rolled into tube and frozen for an hour then cut into slices and refrigerated. She says it's like fudge.
