I am now very thankful that it was just the four of us for Thanksgiving Dinner tonight! Our dinner was absolutely delicious (if I do say so myself) but would you believe that after 90 minutes (yes NINETY MINUTES) my potatoes are still hard as rocks???
Explain this to me?
Here are the specifics:
*they were regular every day red potatoes, the kind I always use for mashed potatoes
*I cut them into manageable pieces as I always do
*I put them in salted water as I always do
*I boiled them, as I always do
*after 45 minutes, water level was getting low so I boiled some water in the kettle and added it (something new)
*at an hour we sat down to eat and the potatoes were still hard
*at an hour and a half, I turned off the pot and gave up
What on earth????
I have never had this happen with potatoes! And what a day for it to happen!
Anyone have any idea about this??
