    Have you considered canning them? Straight canned potatoes is OK but I especially like to make chowder with them. It is a big part of a rushed meal made easy if you open a can of chowder (I like corn chowder myself but there are many variations) heat it up, and add milk and cheese. That is great on those winter evenings with a simple sandwich.

    Well, I'm in North Alabama, with a potato-loving husband [​IMG] Likely too far away for potato exchanges, though...

    I have a great huge cookbook called One Potato, Two Potato which is a big help when the taties get overwhelming!

    If they could be shipped, I'd take any and all extras off your hands, the kids LOVE potatoes. Alas, quick google skim, taters don't ship well.
