Potatoes, how to
© Janneke's Recipe pages - tips and tricks
use burned potatoes:
Ai, chatting too long outside with the neighbours: burned potatoes!
Remove the upper layer potatoes and cook in another pan with water and some salt: frequently they are still usable.
make potato mash nests:
To place several vegetables on 1 plate on the table: make several nests of mashed potatoes (pile the mashed potatoes on the plate, and push holes with a ladle) and fill each with another colour vegetable.
keep warm a few minutes:
If you keep in a pan with the lid on the potatoes get a little sticky: place in stead a dish towel over, it "takes" steam.
Sprinkle potato slices and pommes parissienes before frying with some paprika powder: they'll get delicious brown!
