Jacket Potatoes

Jacket potatoes
Method: 

Scrub your fluffy potatoes clean

Rub a tiny drop of oil into the skins and sprinkle salt around them on a baking tray (the salt draws out the moisture and makes them extra crispy!) or pat a bit on to the skins.

Put them in the oven. Check to see if they're cooked after an hour. A medium potato will be ready within an hour and a half.

When they are cooked, split them open and serve with a bit of butter

If cooking an ovenful of potatoes, increase the temperature to 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7. Use metal skewers or baking prongs pushed through the potatoes to reduce the cooking time by up to a quarter.
