Recipe Information

  • potatoes
  • water
  • salt
  • pressure cooker
  • Hot Pack:
  • Wash, peel, and cut into 1 inch cubes.
  • Dip cubes into brine to prevent darkening (Brine: 1 tsp (5 ml) salt to 1 quart (950 ml) water.)
  • Drain.
  • Cook for 2 minutes in boiling water.
  • Pack hot and cover with boiling water to 1 inch of top.
  • Process in pressure cooker at 10 lbs (4.5 kg) for:

If this sounds like a lot of work, you can pan fry cubes and freeze. Freezing whole potatoes is not recommended. This, too, is not good for all potatoes. It is best to use an all purpose potato instead of a baking potato.
