    Potato supplemented by a good lot of buttermilk - Ireland in old times

    The Rev.

    Starch weight gain?

    I've noticed I've gained 15-20 lbs since incorporating potatoes with coconut oil into my diet daily. Have you guys experienced weight gain on starch as well? Or is it a product of just including more fat in the diet?

    What Kind Of Juicer Do You Use For Potatoes, Please?

    Hi, Can anyone tell me what they are using? I have tried simply adding vinegar to the water due to someone's post on how this removes starch, but I'd rather have the juice. Thanks very much!

    Organic Potatoes?

    I'd like some input on how important it might be to eat organic potatoes to avoid glyphosate. I'm cheap, and it burns me to have to pay outrageous prices for non-poisoned food, but will if it is the right thing to do healthwise.

    (Twice-)Baked Potatoes

    Does nobody here have love for twice-baked (fridge>~90min bake>fridge, short bake when ready to eat) potatoes? Haven't seen them mentioned here, but it's my go-to potato method. They come out moist and waxy from cooking in their own juice without the flesh being exposed to direct heat or...

    Potatoes and Acrylamide

    I would imagine acrylamide has probably been discussed at some point in the history of this forum, but figured I would share this anyway: http://www.pickl-it.com/blog/783/tradit ... crylamide/ Probably not a concern for most peaters who tend to boil their potatoes, but still interesting.
