  • 4 lbs potatoes
  • 1 lb salt really, use it all
  • 1/2 cup butter melted


  • Put 3 quarts of water in a pot. Use a large one so you don't have to clean salt off the stove afterwards.
  • Add salt and bring to a boil. Rinse the potatoes to remove any dirt, but don't peel. Add potatoes and boil for 20 minutes, until a fork goes into the potato easily.
  • Serve with melted butter.
