(U.K.) This is basic energy food.

Servings: I use 125g per person.

Ingredients

250 g
organic local potatoes
pinch of salt

Method

Peel the potatoes and cut into pieces the size of half of a lemon.

Boil enough water to cover the potatoes and add a pinch of salt.

Boil the potatoes until cooked. They are done when you can easily pierce them with a sharp knife. This is usually about 20 minutes.

Drain.

Serve.

Variation

Cut smaller and the potatoes cook faster.

Use in potato salads such as

Nuns salad,

Popular potato salad,

Potato Gratin.

Mashed Potatoes

Drain the potatoes and mash with a potato masher.

Add 60 ml / 2 tbsp margarine and 60ml / 2 tbsp milk to give the potatoes consistency and flavour.
