It actually worked! At 9am this morning I was positive that I had just wasted 6 perfectly good organic baking potatoes by wrapping them in foil and placing them into my slow cooker. However, (by some miracle) 8 hours later I unwrapped the silver parcels to find perfectly cooked jacket potatoes. Genius!!

I had heard that you could cook potatoes in the slow cooker, I just didn’t believe that it would actually work for ME. You know that feeling? I think it comes from having too many epic fails in the kitchen when following recipes. I am not a great recipe follower.
I don’t eat white potatoes a lot, not because I think they are bad, I just prefer sweet potatoes. I have heard that some clean eaters don’t eat them at all but as far as I am concerned, they are real food, they grow in the ground and if you like white potatoes, eat them and enjoy them!
Helpful Note: These potatoes are so filling, strangely more so than oven baked potatoes. I would probably eat half of one topped with chilli or beans and serve it with a side salad for a complete meal.

- 6 Baking Potatoes organic if possible
- 1 teaspoon Oil of choice I used Olive Oil
- 1/4 teaspoon Fine Sea Salt
- Drizzle the oil and salt over the potatoes and give them a rub.
- Wrap each potato up individually in foil.
- Place the potatoes into you slow cooker, it's fine if you have to put them on top of each other.
- Place the lid onto the slow cooker and cook on LOW for 8 hours.
- After 8 hours, carefully remove the potatoes (they will be HOT!) and serve with some organic/grass fed butter.
