and if you're pressed for time you can microwave them for a few minutes (I think that on mine it would take nearly 9 minutes to finish one off but I never finish them in a microwave) you can then take them out and finish them in the oven to give them that crispy texture and it won't take 45 minutes to an hour...I'd only recommend this method if you're pressed for time

We are lucky to have russets in KZ but they are absolutely caked with dried mud-------a PAIN to wash.......and I've learned not to wash them until the day you need them........ scrubbing them, QUICKLY hastens their demise........I guess the mud helps to retain moisture.....I bet GoodWeed and some of our other food experts would have an explanation..........I think here ....what you see is what you get........

I would be happy to get fresh Russets here in Panama, even if they were covered in mud. They are a tuber plant, so I guess they know the soil well. hahaha
