Crispy Skinned Jacket Potatoes



2 baking potatoes
Olive oil


1- Use your fingers to lightly coat the potatoes in oil. Then prick them half a dozen times all over with a fork before sprinkling lightly with salt.

2- Place the potatoes directly onto the oven racks. Bake at 190 C for 1 - 1 1/2 hrs. Once they are cooked you can leave them in the oven cooking for at least another half hour without them coming to any harm.

3- When you can push a skewer easily through the potato it’s done. Bring it out and cut a deep cross into the top. Use your fingers to carefully push the 4 corners of the cross inwards. The cross should pop open to allow you to pour in some really good quality olive oil. Job done!
