Baked Potatoes


Wrap each potato in wet leaves and place them all on hot ashes that lie

over hot coals, put more hot ashes on top of the potatoes, and over the

ashes place a deep bed of red-hot coals. It will require about forty

minutes or more for potatoes to bake. Take one out when you think they

should be done; if soft enough to yield to the pressure when squeezed

between thumb and finger, the potato is cooked. Choose potatoes as near

of a size as possible; then all will be baked to a turn at the same

time.
