  • Wash, peel, and quarter the potatoes, making sure to remove any bruises or eyes. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan filled with boiling, salted water (about 3 to 4 inches). Return to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and cook over medium heat for 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes test tender when poked with a fork. (Remember to check the potatoes occasionally while they are cooking so they do not boil dry.) Drain.
