Time saving tips for potatoes
One of the first things a cook learns when camping, when camp is a mile or more high, is it takes longer for things to cook. Fred is a meat-and-potato kind-ah guy and for a long time I just could not get the two done at the same time until I learned these tricks:
1. Peel your potato,
than across in thin (about 1/4-inch) slices.
Toss in your pot and bring to a boil on campfire or campstove. The potato cooks in less than half the time. Leftover potatoes are ready for a breakfast.
2. Use pre-cooked or frozen potatoes.
3. Instant mash potatoes must have been invented by a camper. Lightweight and quick, requiring less water and minimal cooking time, they are my favorite and most trusted go-to potato product.
