20 Common Cooking Mistakes That Are Ruining Your Food

Cooking Potatoes At a Full Boil

Boiling potatoes is a preferred method of cooking that’s actually not that effective. Many people cook their potatoes at a full rolling boil, only to find that the potatoes aren’t cooked evenly when the water is drained. The outsides are overcooked and too soft, but the insides are still raw. So what’s the problem?

Tip Buzz

Well, a rolling boil isn’t the best way to cook potatoes. Instead, you should simmer the potatoes for about 15 minutes until you can easily pierce them with a fork. Simmering cooks the potatoes more slowly, allowing them to cook evenly from the outside to the inside. It may take slightly longer, but you’ll end up with perfect potatoes.
