Want that oven baked skin on your baked potato, but tired of spending hours waiting for it to cook? Instead you decide to lob it in the microwave and blitz it from the inside out at the expense of that delicious, nourishing outer skin! Or maybe you microwave it first and then stick it in the oven after…but isn’t that a lot of messing around, and bordering on annoying?
Instead, get yourself a nail (Baking nails are available in good cookery stores) or a similar shaped piece of clean, non- toxic metal and insert it into the potato. The conductivity of the metal enables the potato to cook from the inside out, as well as from the outside in…double penetration!
