Directions:
Peel 10 pounds of potatoes and grind in an old fashioned meat grinder (result should resemble crushed pineapple). Add salt and flour to potatoes until mixture feels sticky and holds together. Form large ball (slightly larger than a baseball) and push a small piece of old bread into the center.

Boil a large pot of water (or maybe 2 pots). Gently lower the balls into boiling water and let cook a few minutes at bottom of pot. Lift balls of bottom of pot and they should float to the surface. Cook floating for at least 1/2 hour. Potatoes should be soft when done.

Personal Notes:
