Boiled Potatoes

Along with the recipe for boiled green vegetables, I never really thought I’d need a recipe to boil potatoes. This is something my mom did with some regularity as we were growing up, but I guess if a person had never ventured into the kitchen, a quick and dirty on how to boil potatoes is a good thing. Also, I recommend you leave out the newspaper and just use a clean cloth if you must.

Boiled Potatoes

Take as many potatoes as you wish for dinner, peel them as thinly as possible. Be careful to have them all one size. Put them into a saucepan with enough cold water just to cover them, with a good pinch salt. Put them on the fire & bring them slowly to the boil. Boil them until soft enough to be pierced with a fork, pour the water from them, put a clean cloth or a newspaper into the pan & allow them to stand by the side of the fire from 10 to 15 minutes, until you are ready for them.
