Being that I'm a purebred spud, I am always looking for things to do with my beloved potato. I'd been trying to figure out an easier way to have real (NO packaged potatoes for us, thankyouverymuch, that's sacrilegious for a girl from Idaho!!!) potatoes cooked/packaged/frozen for us to have on hand.
My wicked stepmudder (She's not really wicked. In fact, I'm rather fond of her) sent me this video link of Maryann, from Gilligan's Island, showing a handy dandy quick potato trick. Before I sent it on, I had to try it myself....I *hate* when people send on stuff that hasn't been tried and tested (or snoped or smokinggunned for that matter...).
So, today, while Miss M was napping (hello...her first good nap in DAYS), I gave it a shot. Much to my happiness, it REALLY WORKS!!! I'm going to use half of the potatoes I cooked for tonight's dinner. The other half I'm going to let cool then food saver and freeze! The next time I need some potatoes, I take them out of the freezer, snip the corner off the bag and boil. Voila...instant cooked and *real* potatoes!
So, if you'd like to get good cooked potatoes and skip the peeling part - give this a try:
Ohh...and my stupid funny for the day...
