The clue to the perfect jacket potato lies in the name – any old baked potato can have a delectably fluffy interior, but it takes real skill to achieve that wonderfully crunchy skin. It’s not something which can be rushed, which is presumably why most high-street potatoes are such damp squibs: this is a treat best cooked at home.

How To I Cook It
  1. Cook potato for around an hour in the oven,  – the potato should just give, and the skin should be distinctly crisp. If not, leave them for 10 minutes, and check again – if you overcook them, the insides will be dry, so it’s important to be vigilant.

2. Take out of the oven and put  them whole on to plates: they shouldn’t be opened until you’re ready to eat, and then preferably by hitting them sharply so they burst, for maximum fluffiness. Do your thing with butter, and tuck in immediately.
3. Top it with Herbs , i always love to add – Chives, Parsley, and Basil on Top Of The Potato, just to give it that extra flavoring , and i put it back in the oven for another 30 minutes.
4. I then pre-heat my Baked Beans also adding some lovely herbs to it just to boost the taste, then i finish it up with various spices, ” I Love Spicy Food”.😛
