  • 3 1/3 lb potatoes
  • 1 tbs salt


  • Place the prepared potatoes in a saucepan, cover with cold water, add the salt and bring gently to the boil.
  • When boiling, skim and reduce the heat so the potatoes simmer gently for 20 - 25 minutes until cooked. Drain and serve in a vegetable dish.
  • Notes
  • This applies to main crop potatoes prepared barrel-shaped 5 cm long or trimmed to the size and shape of a medium-sized potato.
  • If boiled too rapidly certain varieties of potato will break up.
  • To test if cooked, remove one potato with a perforated spoon and pierce it with a knife. If it is cooked the point will enter without resistance, alternatively, apply gentle pressure to the potato with the fingers - the potato will yield if cooked.
