Parboiling Potatoes

Some dishes using potatoes, like roast potatoes, benefit greatly by first parboiling them.

Simply put, we put the potatoes in boiling water for 5 to 10 minutes so that their cores are partially cooked.  Try and keep all the potato pieces the same size otherwise the smaller ones will be overdone by the time the larger are ready.


A quick drain and they are perfect for roasting using Jamie Oliver’s methods.




Here are a couple of potato posts to help you plan dinner. 🙂
