Baked Potato


Baking Potatoes

There are several types of potatoes that are great for baking: Russet, White, Idaho, Maine, and a newer variety, Yukon gold.


Thoroughly clean and wash the outside of the potatoes.  Cut out any "bad" spots. If there are no cut out sections, "stab" the potatoes on top with the tip of a knife several times to a depth of about 1/2".  This will prevent the build-up of steam and keep the potato from exploding.

For quick baking, we suggest using a microwave oven, set on high for about 5 to 10 minutes, depending upon the power of the oven and the number of potatoes.   When the tip of a sharp knife or a toothpick slides in easily or the potato is soft to the quick touch (be careful not to get burned), the potato is done.

Potatoes can also be baked in a conventional oven at 350 degrees F. (175 degrees C.) for about 30-45 minutes.  This gives the potato a very nice crispy outside.  Test the potato with a knife or a toothpick slipped into a knife cut to see if it is done.  For baking in the oven, we suggest using only select potatoes so that no areas need to be cut away.  If the potatoes have cut out section, or you do not desire a crispy exterior, we suggest wraping the potatoes in aluminum foil before placing in the oven.


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
