Soak potatoes in cold water to remove starch - 15 minutes then drain.

Place the potatoes in a cheesecloth and wring, extracting
as much moisture as possible.

In a medium bowl stir the potatoes, onion, eggs, flour and
salt together.

In a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat,
heat the oil until hot.

Place large spoonfuls of the potato mixture into the hot oil, pressing down on them to form
1/4 to 1/2 inch thick patties.
