Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Saturday Sancoche


2 lb salt beef
2 lb mixed produce -- * see note
1/2 lb pumpkin
12 ochroes
6 green bananas
2 large potatoes
1/2 lb red beans -- or split peas
1 small onion -- per person
Carrots Seasonings-----
1 garlic
1 scotch bonnet
1 green onions
1 thyme -- etc.

* yam, tannia, cassava, dasheen etc. 1. Put the salt beef to soak overnight. 2. Cut into small pieces and cover with water (2 pints). 3. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 1 1/2 hours with beans or peas. 4. Add peeled and cut up produce. 5. Add the onions (quartered), pumpkin (cut up), chopped seasonings and ochroes. 6. Cook until vegetables are tender. Tip #1: You can add any type of meat to "beef" up this basically meatless dish e.g. chicken, beef, pork etc. The only requirement is that the pieces remain large otherwise they will disappear in the soup. Tip #2: You can make some flour dumplings and plunk them in the soup about 1/2 hour before you are ready. Tip #3: This soup gets very thick very fast! A little water and butter will thin it out.
