5-6 potatoes

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the potatoes in a large pan.
  2. Cover with cold water.
  3. Bring water to a boil over high heat.
  4. As soon as the water starts to boil, turn the heat off but keep the pan on the burner.
  5. Let the pan of potatoes stand on the burner for about 5 minutes,depending on the size of the potatoes.
  6. Larger potatoes may need more standing time.
  7. Drain all of the water from the pan.
  8. Allow potatoes to cool enough to handle.
  9. Store the potatoes in a bowl in refrigerator until ready to use.
  10. Storing the potatoes in a plastic bag tends to make them "sweat" and softens them, which could cause them to go bad sooner(that has been my experience in the past.).
  11. If you do store them in a plastic bag, use them within a day or two to ensure freshness.
  12. Use the potatoes for hashbrowns or fried potatoes.
