   Happy (Jewish) New Year.
   Just back from a visit with the family...My cousin has two beautiful,

Army of the Potomac in Washington, tried mightily to chase them away from his
soldiers.  (For his troubles, his name became a slang common noun for
practitioners of the oldest profession.)

DEAR MARCIA: Can you provide me with a recipe  for Jo-Jo potatoes, which I
tasted in Springfield, Mo.?   - Mary Browning, Colorado Springs

The last time we published a method for making these  crispy browned wedges -
Sept. 28, 1988 - I understood the  dish was a Seattle Wash., specialty.
Apparently it's gone  national!


6 large unpeeled baking potatoes, thoroughly scrubbed

Salad oil

Garlic salt, paprika and/or other herbs or herb mixtures  (no monosodium

Halve potatoes lengthwise, then cut each half in 4 wedges. Parboil 5 minutes;
drain well, and brush cut surfaces lightly  with oil. Sprinkle with
seasonings and bake in preheated  350-degree oven till tender, golden brown and crisp.
Serve  hot as a snack or side dish.
