List of ingredients for Baked potatoes

* 4 large potatoes, 275-350 g (10-12 oz ) each (see list of suitable varieties below)
* 4 tablespoons Olive oil
* 4 teaspoons Butter
* Sea salt

* Wash and thoroughly dry the potatoes
* Prick all over with a fork so there are holes everywhere, this makes it easy for the water to drain and the skin to become crunchy.
* Rub with a little olive oil and lots of sea salt to draw out the water and leave for 2 hours or more.
* Preheat the oven to 220 C (425 F) (Gas 7)
* Rinse off most of the excess sea salt and pat dry before cooking. It's job of drawing out moisture from the skin has been done.
* Place on a rack in the centre of the oven until the skins are crisp (1 to 1.5 hours)
* Make a cross in the top of the potato, wrap with a cloth and squash it to break up the flesh inside
