crockpot baked potatoes without foil wrapping

The rest of the 5# bag was starting to get a bit soft so I did another round of bakers. Goals for this experiment:

  1. see if lack of individual foil wrapping made a difference (it didn’t)
  2. see if vertically-stacked potatoes would cook ok (they did), based on the annular position of the heating element in crock pots.
  3. see if crowded potatoes would cook ok (they did), especially the ones in the middle

Loaded thusly:


After 5hrs on HI they came out just as yummy as the first batch. I encourage you to try it.
