Boiled Potatoes



  1. Wash potatoes and pare thinly.
  2. Put into 1 quart boiling water with 1/2 tablespoon salt and boil until they can be pierced easily with a fork.
  3. Drain thoroughly, return to saucepan, sprinkle with salt, and set on back of stove till dry and mealy.
  4. Do not cover, as that keeps in the steam and makes the potatoes moist.
