Potato Basics

 

To keep potatoes from turning brown after slicing them, place them in a bowl of cold water with 1 T of lemon juice until you are ready to use them.

 

Boiled Potatoes:

Wash potatoes.  Leave skins on whenever possible or pare thinly and remove eyes.  Leave whole or cut into large pieces.  Heat 1 inch salted water (1/2 teaspoon salt to 1 cup water) to boiling.  Add potatoes. Cover and heat to boiling;  cook until tender - 30 to 35 minutes for whole potatoes, 20 to 25 minutes for cut.  Drain.

Baked Potatoes:

Oven Method:  Scrub potatoes and if desired, rub with shortening for softer skins.  Prick with fork to allow steam to escape and wrap potatoes securely in aluminum foil.  Bake potatoes in 400 F oven 1 to 1 1/4 hours (varies depending on size of potato).

Microwave Method:  Scrub potatoes and if desired, rub with shortening for softer skins.  Prick with fork to allow steam to escape and wrap potatoes securely in a paper towel.  Put in microwave for 10 minutes, turning once after 5 minutes (total time varies depending on size of potato and Microwave Wattage).
