My potatoes took about 3 hours and 10 minutes before getting done-at the 2 hour mark they were raw and rechecked them at 2 1/2 hours and they were still not tender. Probably won't hurt them to be in even longer than what I cooked them at. Next time I would spray them with cooking spray and if a person has bacon fat that would be good on them. My potatoes were not overly large either. Served with grilled chops and corn on the cob. Plan on saving the salt and reusing for next time. Made for my PAC Fall 2011 baby.


  1. Pour about 1/2" of salt into the bottom of an oval 4-quart slow cooker. Place the potatoes in a single layer on top of the salt. Add more salt until the potatoes are completely covered. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours or until the potatoes are fork-tender.
  2. Crack the salt crust and remove the potatoes. Rub them with a towel to remove all the salt before serving.
