Green Potatoes (Shirley Nicholson, '43 Club)
First, it came from a community cookbook called "Cooking Behind the Fence." Published by the '43 Club of Oak Ridge, TN, it is filled with recipes from the early residents of Oak Ridge, during World War II when it was known as the Manhattan Project. The city of Oak Ridge was a major player in ending that war.
Second, none of the early residents of Oak Ridge were from Oak Ridge - it was a brand new city, a "secret city" and many of the young wives who came to live there didn't even know where they were! But they brought their family's recipes with them from all over the country, sometimes all over the world. This recipe originated in Sweden, but there are also "Green Potato" dishes native to the Dutch and the Irish.
Hope you enjoy this one. I love spinach, and I love mashed potatoes, so this one is real winner with me. I was born and raised in Oak Ridge, and the cooks in this cookbook are the parents of all my school friends.
