Potatoes Hashed, Like you like 'em!

Potatoes from our garden!
One of the few things that we actually harvested this year.
(We finally just pulled up our tomato plants and planted new ones.)
Daddio is making hash browns!
2Goovydude and 2hipchick are singing in our best operatic voices.
It's like the angels singing....Laaaaaa!
We are happy!
Daddio learned a new trick.
Boil those potatoes before hashing.
After boiling, you shred them, like Mammie is doing here.
Her hands are like lightning!
(Mammie is my mom, as most of you know.)
Perfectly shredded goodness.
Perfectly shredded goodness thrown into a pan with lots of perfectly good butter.
Did I say, Yum?
They are cooking.
They are toasting and crisping.
Food just has so many adjectives.
I love adjectives.
I love food!
Are they not beautiful?
2Groovydude & 2hipchick once again sing,
Then we chow down.
Seriously, these are the best hash browns, just boil, baby boil!

Hash Browns Daddio Style

6 large potatoes, with skins
Large amounts of butter, probably 1/2 a stick
Salt and pepper

Par-boil potatoes leaving skins in place for about 10-15 minutes, depending on size.  Run potatoes under cool water, so they won't burn your fingers.  Shred potatoes, skins and all on a grater.  Melt butter in a hot skillet and add potatoes.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Flatten potatoes, so as much potato surface as possible can get toasty and crispy.  Eat them up before anyone else can get them!

Oh, my!  I am actually salivating, just writing this down.  More hash browns, please.

Gotta give you options!
