Potatoes are delicate and delicious boiled but when baked, golden and crispy, they are simply irresistible.

With their mouthwatering aroma and spicy seasoning, no wonder that baked potato wedges or jacket potatoes are among the staple party foods. Are you wondering how to make those yummy potatoes with crispy skin yourself?

Baking time depends on your preferences and the shape of potatoes. If you bake them whole or cut into large chunks, they will need more time in the oven than, e.g. French fries. It is a good idea to prick your potatoes with a fork by the end of baking to check whether they are soft inside.

Did you know?

Raw or undercooked potatoes can pose a risk to your health. Always make sure that you cook or bake them thoroughly!

Potatoes contain a poisonous glyco-alkaloid, solanine, whose role is to protect the plant from insects and fungus. The symptoms of solanine poisoning in humans include diarrhea, vomiting, paralysis, hallucinations, dizziness and fever.

The highest concentration of solanine can be found in and just under the potato’s skin, especially if its flesh has greenish hue. High temperatures (over 170oC) are effective at reducing the amount of solanine in potatoes. That is why baking potatoes is better for our health than boiling.

Technically Scotland doesn't count because they abolished the use of counties, hence why Inverness shire is not on the list.
