Not asking that you make it, unless you want to. Please, just read it and let me know if it reads well. Thanks!

It reads very well. I make my potatoes this way sometimes minus the carroway seeds. Sounds yummy :)

It reads well - just one question though - after you have par boiled the potatoes, so you dry them before adding to the butter and oil? I have done a similar method and I place them on a rack to dry and cool before adding them to the skillet.

Yes you want to dry them before you buy them in oil or butter . Because if you don't they will pop oil up and you could get burnt with the oil .

I usually let them steam off in a colander before putting them in the oil. I've seen others par boil them the day before they use them. Thanks for pointing that out. Water and hot oil are baaaaad!

Since you already have peeled after the potato on the ingredient list, I would shorten to just cut peeled potatoes into 1/2" cubes. Add to a large pot of salted boiling water. For us more experienced cooks we can gauge the amount of water and salt in the pot without the potatoes. Don't know if you would want to describe the pot size, cups of water, amount of salt needed. I always add the potatoes, then water, then bring to a boil.

I am so bad at explaining things to people who may never have boiled water! It takes a talent to be able to do that. Hopefully I'll develop it!

I know! But if you intending to try to get it published, you have to write it like you are explaining it to a teen cook.
