In Response to Re: ST. PATRICKS DAY:
Here I go again ...... Susan, what are Golumpkies? hmmmmmmm...... 60 years ago we made potato candy every christmas. I made some just a couple years ago because the group I was talking too laughed and hooted about something as strange and unbelievable as potato candy. My ancient version is to just take a chunk of boiled potato and start mashing powdered sugar into it. The bit of potato takes an incredible amount of powdered sugar. Keep adding and mashing until you get a solid, thick chunk. Then use a rolling pin to flatten out the concoction ... just roll it into a thin - maybe 1/8" (a quarter inch is too thick) sheet. Spread that all with peanut butter, roll it up, cut into slices and it's ready to go.

Soon, I won't post anymore, your giving me a complex!
Golumpkies (not sure of spelling) is hamburger & rice wrapped in cabbage served in tomato sauce.
The candy that you described is called Irish Potato candy!
