How to ParBoil Potatoes

by katerina on October 10, 2007

Because potatoes take awhile to cook it is sometimes useful to give them a bit of a head start, and that is where parboiling comes in. Once they have parboiled they have many uses. I put them in salads, fry them up for hash browns or cut them in thin slices and put them on pizza.

How to Parboil Potatoes:

Cover the potatoes with room temperature water and bring to a light boil. Boil for 10-15 minutes (about 15 for a large potato). Take potatoes off the heat and immerse in cool water. Let cool before you handle them. This works best with boiling potatoes.
