The other night I was hungry. I put two potatoes in the oven. A little later I felt very tired. I went to bed….and forgot about them until the following morning! Here they are, light as a feather but with a surface like bronze, and strangely beautiful.
How to really bake potatoes…….
1. Preheat oven to 200 C/Gas 6.
2. Scrub large potatoes, then stab each one a couple times with a fork.
3. Sprinkle with a little sea salt whilst still wet and place directly on the oven shelf and bake for about 45 minutes to about an hour, or when poked with a skewer it slides through easily.
