50 pounds of potatoes will fill 35 quart jars

When working with the potatoes, keep any peeled ones in cold water as you work

Peel and remove any dark spots from potatoes, hold in cold water

Chop potatoes into 1/2-1 inch chunks, hold in cold water as you work

Rinse with fresh water as needed to remove starch

In a large pot, bring water to a boil

Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt to each quart jar or 1/2 teaspoon to each pint jar

Fill jars with potatoes up to a 1 inch head space

Add boiling water to each jar

Remove air bubbles, add more water to bring it back to 1 inch headspace

Wipe rim, apply lid and ring

Process pints at 11 pounds pressure for 35 minutes, quarts for 40 minutes

After 24 hours have passed, remove rings and wash jars

Label jars with date and store. Do not stack jars

 

Here are a few great ways to use this potatoes.

They are ready to go for Potato Salad.

Boil them for a few minutes and then you can mash them for mashed potatoes.

They are mostly cooked so I even put them in crock pot meals, but half way through instead of the beginning.

They are very convenient to have on hand.

I also use them in dishes like this….
