The Perfect Baked Potato
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°
  2. Scrub potatoes very well – I use a green scouring pad to do this. Make sure you scrub off the dusty outer layer.
  3. Poke the potato all over with a fork or knife – make at least 6-7 holes
  4. Rub each potato with olive oil
  5. Sprinkle generously with coarse sea salt
  6. Place potatoes directly on to oven rack – place a pan beneath them to catch any drips
  7. Bake for 90 minutes
  8. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes
  9. Slit top across lengthwise
  10. Pinch either side of the potato and lightly squeeze so that a bit of the inside fluffs out
  11. Add your favorite toppings.
