- What makes The Perfect Jacket Potato?
- Is it the filling?
- Is it how you cook it?
- Is it the type of Potato you choose?
First of all, the type of Potato you choose, makes a huge amount of difference to the taste.
Different countries, have different varieties of Potatoes. I used to think a Potato was a Potato, but they certainly aren't. Choose your Potato well, make sure it's washed, and then you can cook it.
Microwave a Jacket Potato or Oven?
Many people cook their Jacket Potatoes in the Microwave, it's quicker than cooking them in an oven, and it uses less power. I prefer microwave a Jacket Potato first, and then finish them off, in the oven for 10 minutes. This gives the Skin, a nice crispness to it.
