"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Peel and shred the potatoes. Place in the center of a large clean dish towel and squeeze firmly to remove as much liquid as possible. Set aside.
Whisk together flour and eggs. Stir in the salt, pepper and onion. Stir potatoes into the mixture and add the cream.
Pour enough oil in a skillet to 1/4-in. thickness. Heat until very hot (375 degrees), and ladle in a large spoonful of batter for each pancake. Press lightly with back of the spoon to flatten slightly. They should be approximately 3 in. in diameter. Cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side until browned. Remove to paper towel lined plate, then onto a baking sheet to keep in a warm oven until serving time. Makes 16 to 18 pancakes. Serve with applesauce.
