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.


Susan Rostov's Homemade Corned Beef


4 quart water
1 cup salt
1 teaspoon saltpeter
2 beef briskets, about 4 lbs.
1 . each
12 garlic cloves
3 tablespoon pickling spices
8 bay leaves

Boil water. Add salt and saltpeter, stir to dissolve and set aside to cool. Place meat in a large crock, zipper-style plastic bag or other non-metal container. Pour salt water over meat and add garlic, pickling spices and bay leaves. Meat should be submerged. You might want to set a clean plate on top of the meat and put a brick or mayonnaise jar full of water on top of the plate to keep the meat under the pickling solution. Refrigerate or set in a cool place for 3 weeks. Drain and remove bay leaves before cooking.
