1/4 cp water, when cooking potatoes electrically.
2/3 cp water when using coal, wood, oil, or gas.
Be sparing when you peel them. Lots of health for your family is right under the skin. If possible, peel the potatoes just before putting on to cook. Don't let them soak in cold water. The health goodies will soak out if you do. It's good health meal planning to peel only enough potatoes for the meal. For a famil of four, 5 or 6 medium size potatoes are sufficient, depending on the apetites, of course. Salt to taste. Place in utensil which has a good, tight- fitting cover. If your cooking utensils have lost their covers, use a tin piepan until you can find a good cover. Cook on high heat until steam begins to es- cape. Then reduce heat and continue to cook 20-25 minutes. Do not let water boil violently. If potatoes are left over, place in covered utensil and store in refrigerator.
