I cleaned and peeled about 8ish potatoes.
I chopped them into half moons.
I melted three (the shame!) sticks of butter and added *cough* several tablespoons of white sugar. Don't let anything boil, but it should all get melty on decent heat. I
put the potatoes in and put the top on the pot. A couple hours later, the potatoes were about to fall apart, so I took them off the heat. I drained off a LOT of the butter, and in the future, I'll offset the butter with water.
