Real Potato Pancakes

Ingredients
2 cups grated potatoes (must use mature potatoes)
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon all  purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 to 3 teaspoons grated onion

1/4  inch or more of beef drippings or oil

Directions
This recipe requires mature potatoes.
Pare and grate potatoes coarsely
Fold the gratings into a muslin towel and wring the towel to extract as much moisture from the potatoes as possible. Place them in a bowl.

Beat eggs well and stir into potatoes
Combine and sift:  flour and salt
Add  to the potato mixture along with  grated onion

Heat in a heavy skillet: beef drippings or oil
Place spoonfuls of the potato mixture in the skillet, forming them into patties 1/4 inch thick and 3 inches in diameter. Brown, then turn and brown the second side until crisp. These are usually served hot with Applesauce.

If you must hold until all the batter is cooked place them on a rack above a baking sheet in a 200 oven.
Then serve all of them at once after draining on paper toweling to remove, any excess fat.
