Prepare your baking dish:
That's parchment paper with a 5" overhang on each of the long sides of the dish. It's been sprayed with non-stick spray. This is looking like scalloped potatoes isn't it? Well, it is, sort of. There will be a surprise ending!
Pour 1 c heavy cream into a medium sized bowl. Slice your potatoes lengthwise on a mandoline set at 1/16th inch. If you are able, place the mandoline over the bowl, if you can't, then gather up the potatoes as quickly as possible and swirl them around in the cream. This keeps them from oxidizing.
Repeat the process and after the second layer add dots of butter and salt and pepper.
Continue this process and after every second layer dot with butter and sprinkle salt and pepper. When the pan is filled wrap the parchment paper to form a package.
You'll see the final stage of this dish on Sunday's post. I am excited about this dish, the outcome (if I get it right) is really very pretty and should complement our main dish very well.
See you soon!
