Faster (Baked) Spuds

·        Scrub the potatoes with a vegetable brush and place in boiling water for approximately 10 minutes before placing in a hot oven - 400 degrees
·        Scrub potatoes and pat dry. Push a metal skewer through the center and place on a baking sheet. (The skewer helps circulate the heat and therefore shortens the cooking time.)

·        Cutting a small slice off each end of the potato provides for a faster cooking time

·        Potatoes on the grill – scrub the potatoes, pat dry and rub skins with salad oil or butter. Wrap potatoes individually in foil and place close to hot coals for about an hour…turning frequently.
