The family really enjoyed these. I shredded the potato into a salad spinner full of cool water and rinsed the potato starch off using the insert as a colander then spun the potatoes dry. Next time I would probably add some finely diced onion. Very tasty. - 17 Sep 2012


I made these as something different for my fussy 2 year old. I thought they were ok but she seemed to really enjoy them. I needed to add extra flour because too sticky to form into fritters without it. I also think I needed more potato, my large potatoes obviously weren't large enough! A weight would have been handy. I will make for my daughter again and may add some onion next time. - 02 Dec 2013
