Have potatoes clean, pare them, wipe dry with. clean cloth. Slice thin on slaw cutter, only slicing several potatoes at a time, as they color if sliced long before frying. Have 1 1/2 pints of lard real hot. Drop the sliced potatoes into this. Stir carefully once or twice while frying, only allow them to become a light-brown. Lift into a sieve or colander to drain, afterward putting them into an earthen or porcelain vessel, sprinkling a little salt over them as you put them into this, When cold, cover and keep in a dry place, where they can be kept for a few weeks. The lard can be used a number of times if covered and kept in a cool place. Use a wire spoon or wide fork for stirring and lifting the potatoes. They are to be kept dry in order to retain the crispness, which makes them more palatable.
