Last year, I shared a tip on freezing red potatoes from our garden. It was my first time freezing potatoes and I didn't know if they would be good or not. I have tried cooking them several ways but was not pleased with the texture nor the taste. I went several months without using any.
Recently, I started baking them. Cooked this way, they taste just like they do fresh from the garden. I believe the secret to making my frozen potatoes taste good is thawing, draining and letting them marinate in the seasoning.
I have just a couple of packages left in the freezer. We are hoping for a good crop this year. I'm planning to freeze a lot more than I did last year and preparing them in different ways after thawing and marinating them. However, baked like this, they taste like French Fries and I'll bet this will be our favorite way for me to prepare them.
Cook Time: 45-60 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours or more
This sounds like a good way to use up extra potatoes (frozen months ago) and no frying!
