    6                    Medium potatoes
    1                    Onion
    2                    Eggs
      1/2   c            Flour
    1       t            Salt
                         Vegetable shortening or
                         Oil for frying
   Pare and grate potatoes into a mixing bowl.  Squeeze
   out liquid.  Peel and grate onion into potatoes.  Add
   eggs, flour, and salt and stir to make a smooth batter
   that will drop heavily from the spoon. Heap the
   shortening in a heavy frying pan using enough to cover
   the pancakes amply. Drop the batter from a spoon into
   the hot shortening, making pancakes 3 inches in
   diameter. Fry over moderate heat until brown on the
   underside, turn to brown.  Life out and drain off
   excess fat on paper towel. Pancakes fried in deep fat
   should be puffed and crisp. These pancakes may also be
   baked in a shallow baking pan for 45 minutes at 350F
   until nicely browned. Cut into squares and serve hot.
   They may also be put into a well greased small muffin
   pan and baked 45 minutes at 350F.
