    Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 250⁰C / 480⁰F. Rinse the potatoes well without damaging their peel and transfer to a wide, deep pot. Add water to cover and a heaping tablespoon of sea salt. Bring to boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 mins, until the potatoes are softened enough so that the fork teeth will stick to them easily but not without resistance. The potatoes should be completely cooked but not crumbled.

Jida’s Tip

Baking time will vary based on the size of the potatoes. For extra crispy potato tops, oven grill in the last 5 minutes
