Some Other Ideas with Potatoes:
Fourth of July: Potato Salad!
We boil our eggs (in the shells) and whole baby red potatoes at the same time. Boil 2 minutes only. Transfer into our thermal unit and walk away. Later when they are cooked and cooled, the boiled potatoes and hard boiled eggs are used to turn them into our famous Potato Salad!
At Thanksgiving: Mashed Potatoes!
After the potatoes are finished cooking, we drain the water off the pot of pealed potatoes (we had boiled smaller pealed potatoes for 3 minutes) and we put a hand mixer and some butter and lots if salt and pepper and a little milk to make our famous mashed potatoes! We keep them hot and ready until the Turkey and the rest of the dinner is done, back in a closed Saratoga Jacks thermal cooker after we are done mixing them. (PS we use another smaller 5 liter cooker to make the gravy early and perfect, and let that hold in our Jack Pot until dinner there too!)
St Patricks Day: Corned Beef, Baby Red Potatoes, Carrots and Cabbage
2 steps. In the morning: The Corned Beef gets covered in Water and the spices added. I boil that for 4 minutes. Transfer and shut into the Thermal Unit.
In the afternoon: 4 hours later I put it back on the stove. Add the baby red potatoes, and chopped carrots, and boil for 2 minutes more. In the last 30 seconds of the 2 minute boil… I add several quartered heads of cabbage on the very top (sitting slightly above the water line so it gets steamed.) Put on the lid. Transfer and close in the thermal pot for another 4 hours. Serve for dinner with our famous Saratoga Jacks Sour Dough bread.
Throw everything in the pot. Boil 2 min. Transfer to the thermal unit. Eat anytime between 2 and 8 hours later.
Just Drain 20 minutes before you will eat. Transfer back into the pot to keep it warm while you spread your newspaper out and get ready your plates for the feast!
Pour it out on Newspaper. Cover in butter, salt, pepper, paprika, and a nice cajun seasoning. Have fresh cut lemon wedges nearby for squeezing on your seafood.
