are some of the tips I use when cooking potatoes. If I am
need to bake potatoes fast I precook then in boiling water
for about 10 or 15 minutes. I coat them with cooking oil
before placing on a roasting dish. It reduces the baking
time to less than ten minutes. Another trick is to put a
metal skewer through the potato. The skewer acts as a heat
conductor that delivers heat to the centre of the potato. -
