A potato secret?
I am doing a contract teaching a client's employees over six weeks. Last week it was Word, this week it's Excel.
There are four groups ... Monday is group 1, Tuesday is group 2, Wednesday is group 3 and Friday is group 4.
There are cooks in the groups. I mentioned on Wednesday that I love Portuguese potatoes but didn't know how to make them.
Rob, a cook, said to boil small round potatoes (from the produce department not a can), a can of crushed tomatoes and the juice of lemon.
I put them in the crockpot this morning around 7:00, figuring they would be ready for supper.
At 5:00 when I got home, they were still hard.
I boiled them on the stove for another hour.
Though they are tasty, they are still hard.
I've never used small round potatoes before ... is there a secret?
