Plastic is everywhere. It’s even in places you wouldn’t expect – like wrapped around potatoes.
Why would you take a perfectly good potato and wrap it in plastic?
OK, let’s be real. Potatoes are inconvenient. They’re dirty and take forever to cook. I can hear the advertisement now….
“Stop wasting your time washing and baking potatoes. You could be eating a clean potato with that “oven-baked-taste” in just seven minutes. Pop a shrink-wrapped nugget of potato into your microwave and BAM!”
Not to me. I have a strict no plastic in the microwave policy, and I like to buy produce in the buff (without packaging).
I do like to save time though, so I’ve been known to…
- Microwave potatoes for 5-10 minutes prior to baking them.
- Cut my potatoes, boil them for 5-10 minutes, then smother them with olive oil and bake.
Yep, I’m crazy. I like my potatoes without plastic. How about you?
