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.


Escudella De Pages

meats, soups/stews, pork

2 1/2 quart water
4 veal bones
1 ham bone
1 salt
1 generous pinch of saffron threads
3 tablespoon olive oil
4 oz salt pork
4 oz peeled, chopped onions
1/2 stewing chicken, bite-sized pieces
1/2 lb veal, bite-sized pieces
1/2 lb potatoes
1 medium leek
5 oz carrots
4 oz green cabbage
4 oz dried great northern, cooked
4 oz rice
3 oz pasta, medium or large

(NOTE: Oz measurements are by weight.) Make a good broth with the water, veal and ham bones, simmering slowly. When nearly done, add salt to taste and the saffron. Blanch the salt pork to remove the excess salt, then dice. Heat the oil in a large skillet, add the diced salt pork and chopped onions. When the onions begin to brown, add the pieces of chicken and veal and allow to cook slowly. Peel the potatoes, leek and carrots, chop them fairly finely, then add to the skillet with the chicken and veal. Chop the cabbage finely and add to the skillet. Give it all a good stir. Remove the bones from the broth and discard. Empty the contents of the skillet into the broth, then add the beans, rice and pasta. Cook for about 10 - 15 minutes, until the rice and pasta are done, then serve very hot. Pages, in Catalan, means peasant, rural, or rustic.
