Malfunctioning potatoes

#1 Postby compassionategirl » Wed Jan 11, 2006 5:50 pm

So I just tried boiling some potatoes for a potato salad made with veganaise.

I cut em up and put em in a pot of boiling water. Came back after about 30 minutes, only to find a pot of cream of potato soup. :shock:

My potatoes malfunctioned. :?

:lol: :lol: I'm sure the soup was very good ? :lol:

I think 30 minutes is too long to boil sliced potatoes. I've always boiled the potatoes whole and then sliced them.
Out of my mind...Back in five minutes.

:lol:

Ahh, okay, good - i was worried that maybe I had bought some defective potatoes which caused them to malfunction under pressure.
:lol: :wink:
But yes, the accidental potato soup was very good. But from this lil calamity was born the knowledge of how to make cream of potato soup. :shock:

Thanks Crash. :D

Depending on the size of the pieces, 10-15 min should do it for yukon golds. Just cooked some myself last night. I think I had them in for about 10 min and they just right.

Liz, Are Yukon golds available in your area all year? We rarely have them, so it's real treat when they do show up.

Hmmm, I don't know. I got mine at Whole Foods, but who knows where they trucked them in from.

boiling malfunctioning potatoes for 30 minutes = cream of potato soup from scratch.

I find that yukon gold potato cooked quicker than a regular baking potato.

Oops. :oops: Should have included that 30 minutes is too long to boil potatoes if you don't want them really mushy (sorry). Maybe start checking after 10-15 minutes ? Also, I leave the skin on when boiling, but peel it off when they're done. (May help to keep the potatoes intact :wink: , but you still cannot overcook by much.)

You can experiment with other types of potatoes for potato salad (red potatoes, etc.)

I think your potatoes had a mind of their own, and they decided to be soup!

That's one reason why I rarely name any of my own inventions ("soup", "casserole", "stew") until they are done, because they may not turn out to fit the name!
