————————-Water and cooking times——————————
One layer needs ½ cup of water. Bake on high 2 to 2½ hours.
Half to ¾ full needs ¾ cup of water. Bake on high 2 to 2½ hours.
A full cooker needs ¾ cup of water. Bake on high for 3½ hours.
You can select from a variety of potatoes.
Smaller potatoes will cook faster than larger ones. If you have different sizes, check the small ones early and take them out when they are done.
Small potatoes take 20 – 30 minutes less.
Do not poke potatoes with a fork. That will leave dark streaks.
Baking on low will darken the flesh.
Baking times depend on the crockpot, size of potatoes and the desired firmness.
You can cook them up to 1 – 1 1/2 hours longer before the flesh darkens.
You can plan ahead by scrubbing the potatoes and refrigerating them in a bag until needed. Remove the blemishes at baking time.
If you want, put some yams and sweet potatoes in with the potatoes. Take them out early as they do not take as long to cook.
