September is National Potato Month, and here in Lancaster County we love our potatoes (and our noodles, corn, bread, rolls, and potpie)! Come to think of it, we’ve never met a starch we didn’t like.
Back to potatoes. We really like that we can make a meal out of baked potatoes. And because we want our potatoes ready and waiting when we arrive home from work or from running the kids around, we especially like that we can do them in the slow cooker. Here’s how:
1. Prick potatoes with fork and wrap in foil
2. Place in slow cooker, cover, and cook on High 2 ½ – 4 hours, or on Low 8-10 hours. Do not add water to slow cooker.
