Kitchen Tip Tuesday: Potatoes

O.K....this may not be a revelation to ya'll. (Again, feelin' country.) But...if you are needing mashed (or smashed) potatoes for lunch after church and you don't want to wash, peel, cube, etc. right after church (not to mention waiting for them to cook). Then try this...

The night before...yes, I said the night before! Wash, cube (peel if you like them skinless, but the skin is so much healthier, you know?!), and place the potatoes in the pan you'll cook them in. Cover with cold water and put in the fridge. The next morning. Drain the starchy water and add more water to cover them. Put them on the stove, bring to a boil. As soon as they start to boil, turn them off! Yep. Turn them off. Put a lid on them and leave them on the stove. When you get home from church, 2 or 3 or even 4 hours later they'll still be warm. Turn the stove back on and cook until they are totally done. Then prepare them this way or however you like mashed or smashed potatoes. Easy peasy! ; )
