Cooking for the Freezer, Potatoes

I have 10 pounds of potatoes to work with today. Usually, on freezer filling day, I work with many items, but today I only have the potatoes, so that's what I'm working with. Be looking for posting in the future that deal with other ingredients, as I will post as I do them. So what to do with that 10 pound bag of potatoes? For a family of 6, 10 pounds can be used rather quickly. Here is my plan for today: Twice Baked Potatoes and Ready to Mash Potatoes.

Ready to Mash Potatoes: I got this idea when I bought a bag of steam and mash potatoes. I thought if the manufacturer could do it, surely I could too. So here is what I do. Clean, peel and cube the potatoes. Cook them in water to cover, until they are just before fork tender. Drain, cool slightly and spread into a single layer onto baking sheets. Place in the freezer until frozen. Bag them up in portions that will feed your family and place in the freezer. When ready to use, pop the bag in the microwave and cook for 10 minutes. Mash as usual. Such a time saver!

Twice baked potatoes: I pull out all of the largest potatoes and make these. I will write down the ingredient measurements today so that I can get the recipe up for you all.

Happy Freezer Cooking!
