Pommes de terre a la citronuille The directions for this recipe are very loose; Boil together equal parts of peeled potatoes and pumpkin. When cooked, drain them, add 1 good sized onion, finely chopped and a piece of butter. Mash all till creamy, season to taste and serve with golden sliced of fried salt pork or bacon. To quote Mme. Benoit, "Grand-mere was a wizard with pumpkin. Her mashed potatoes pumpkin french fried chips were super.
It's amazing how most of what we enjoyed in our youth remains a pleasure as we grow older. In the autumn of 1959 I made these on my television show. The amount of mail requesting the recipe was unbelievable!"
