Don't knock it 'til you try it! My great aunt came by one morning and offered me some candy. It looked good and as I was reaching to get a piece, I asked her what kind of candy it was. When she replied potato candy, I almost took my hand back without a piece. I didn't want to hurt my aunts feelings, so I went ahead and took a piece of the candy that she seemed so pleased with. She watched me as I took a bite. I probably had a surprised look in my eyes as I tasted, and she smiled. I got the recipe from her and I make it in her memory usually at Christmas or at special gatherings.
1 small red potato, boiled in jacket
1 box confectioner sugar
Boil sm. potato until very tender. Remove jacket. Mash potato with fork. Add sugar a little at a time, keep mashing with fork. This mixture will end up very stiff. Sprinkle wax paper with conf. sugar. Put potato-sugar mix. on the paper and roll out like you would cookie dough. After it's rolled out evenly, spread peanut butter on it. Roll up like a jelly roll, then cut in pieces.
This is simple, but very rich and delish! Enjoy.
