Red Potatoes

I dug up all the potatoes a few weeks ago. Since we don't have any sort of root cellar, I decided to try freezing them. All my books say potatoes don't freeze well.

First I scrubbed them and cut them into cubes roughly the same size. I didn't peel them. Next, I boiled them for a couple of minutes then put them quickly in cold water. I bagged them up in zip bags and put them in the freezer.

We ate the first bag of frozen potatoes last night with supper. I roasted them in a little olive oil and they turned out fine. I couldn't tell they had been frozen.
