DIRECTIONS

  • Put the potatoes in a large pan.
  • Cover with cold water.
  • Bring water to a boil over high heat.
  • As soon as the water starts to boil, turn the heat off but keep the pan on the burner.
  • Let the pan of potatoes stand on the burner for about 5 minutes,depending on the size of the potatoes.
  • Larger potatoes may need more standing time.
  • Drain all of the water from the pan.
  • Allow potatoes to cool enough to handle.
  • Store the potatoes in a bowl in refrigerator until ready to use.
  • 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.).
  • If you do store them in a plastic bag, use them within a day or two to ensure freshness.
  • Use the potatoes for hashbrowns or fried potatoes.
