Step 1

  • Thoroughly wash your potatoes in the sink.
  • Peel your potatoes leaving the desired amount of skin on the potato.  Remove all the skin if you would like.
  • Using a knife and cutting board, cut the potatoes into smaller pieces.  (This will allow the potatoes to cook more evenly and quickly)
  • Once all potatoes are cut place them in the large pot and cover with cold water.  (Bring level of water to just above the top of the potatoes.)
  • Bring water to a boil and turn down to medium heat.
  • Cook potatoes until fork tender.
