HOW TO PREPARE POTATOES FOR COOKING

There are a number of different ways to prepare potatoes, among them baked, mashed, roasted, potato salad, au gratin, scalloped, and grilled. Potatoes for recipes like fries, mashed, roasted, etc. can be cut and soaked in water up to two days before. Rinsing the potatoes before cooking helps remove excess starch which can improve the texture and mouthfeel of many potato dishes. If you want to cook potatoes fast, cut them into smaller pieces. For fast mashed potatoes, for example, rather than boiling the whole potato, cut potatoes into quarters.
