    Baking Potatoes for Different Lengths of Time

    Have you heard of a system of baking potatoes in bulk, but for different lengths of time so that those pulled out before being fully done can be used for other purposes? As I understand it, some would be removed after so many minutes, marked to be used for ??? and frozen, then others would be removed, etc., until the last ones would be those used for the evening meal. If you know this system, I would appreciate your posting it as I can sometimes get ten pounds of potatoes for $1.99 but we don't really eat a lot of them quickly. Thanks, AM

     I'm interested in that idea, too. I've never heard of it so sorry I don't have an answer for you, Anna Marie. I've heard that freezing potatoes tends to make them splintery or something, so are you saying that that doesn't happen? I know they have freezer meals with potatoes in them but they also freeze flash those or something. :P

    Since I've heard of this, but never tried it, I don't know but would be willing to try once to find out how much of an issue it would be for us. AM

    Hi ... here is a link to a site I use often, it lists how to prep potatoes for the freezer - different applications: oven and boiling methods.

     Thrifty Fun is a nice site (still like Dollar Stretcher better though, lol). Thanks for that!

    No, I was hoping that someone who had would know how long and to what  use each would be put.  AM
