Jolly Good Tips!

Begin cooking potatoes on high. Bring to a boil and reduce to medium heat. Cover potatoes with a lid. Please make certain potatoes are diced perfectly equal in size.

Potato selection. Choose potatoes that are firm with no soft, dark or green spots.

When cooking leeks watch for them to become translucent.

I would love to hear how you did on this recipe;
