Our potato harvest last year yielded about 1 ½ bushels – a mix of Yukon Gold and Red Pontiac. Overall, they were good size. Our Yukons were hit with black heart, but it seemed to only affect the larger potatoes and, once removed from the center, the potatoes were fine to use.
We haven’t eaten as many as we should have by now and not having a proper cellar to store them in, they are getting a little wrinkly and sprouting eyes like mad. The Yukons are faring better than the Reds, but it’s obvious we need to something with them.
I have never put up potatoes before. I know they can be canned, but how many ways can you use canned potatoes? That wouldn’t work for all of them. I've heard tales of people having homemade hashbrowns in the freezer and decided to give them a try.
