After a chill, potato rolls will warm your tummy


August 24, 1994|By Ellen Hawks | Ellen Hawks,Sun Staff Writer

An oven treat from the refrigerator and pickled eggs in a jar are responses worth trying.

Jessica E. Burns of Los Alamos, N.M., asked for a potato refrigerator roll. She wrote that the recipe was "high in sugar, shortening and contained eggs and made enough for three large batches."

Charlotte Stevens of Baltimore responded.

Stevens' Refrigerator Potato Rolls

Makes about 3 dozen

1/2 cup warm mashed potatoes

1 1/2 cups warm water

2 packages dry yeast

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1/2 cup softened butter or margarine

6 1/2 cups unsifted all-purpose flour

Measure flour in large bowl. Put yeast in warm water; add sugar and salt.

In a very large bowl, put 3 cups flour, eggs, butter, potatoes and yeast mixture. Mix with electric mixer at high speed until smooth. Add 2 more cups of flour and beat. Add remainder of flour and mix with hands until dough leaves sides of the bowl.

Oil top of dough and cover. Let rise in refrigerator for 2 hours until dough doubles. Remove and punch down. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 3 days. Punch down each day. Remove from refrigerator about 2 hours before serving. Shape into rolls and cover them with a towel and let rise for about 1 hour. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes or until brown.

Frances Kelley of Atchison, Ky., and Mildred Mowat of Walla Walla, Wash., each requested a recipe for preserving boiled eggs.

Emma Jean Siple of Baltimore responded with a recipe which she writes was passed down by her mother who was Pen'sylvania Dutch. "I hope they enjoy."

Siple's Pennsylvania Dutch Beet Eggs

1 dozen eggs

1 (20-ounce) can whole small beets with juice

vinegar to cover

salt and pepper to taste

Boil the eggs and peel. Put in a large pitcher. Cover with vinegar and add beets and juice. Add salt and pepper. Let stand in refrigerator for a day or two until eggs become red.

Ms. Siple notes that "I do not use the white vinegar and I have kept the pickled eggs up to two weeks or more in the refrigerator."

Correction: In last week's Recipe Finder, the first ingredient for the Louisiana Ring Cake topping should have read 3/4 cup of the cake batter.
