5 - 6 servings s


  • 2 pounds:of potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1 teaspoon:of salt

  1. Add the potatoes to a large pot with enough cold water to cover them by an inch or so.
  2. Add salt and bring the water to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife.
  3. (About 15 minutes) Drain the potatoes return them to the pot and cook the drained potatoes over low heat for a couple of minutes to evaporate some of the water still in the potato.
