Directions

Idaho® Potato “Shot Glasses”
  1. Bring medium pot of water to boil. Add potatoes and cook until a toothpick may be inserted into each potato with little force, 12 to 15 minutes. Do not overcook; potatoes should be tender but still firm to the touch. Chill potatoes in ice bath.
  2. Trim each potato to create a flat bottom. Cut off top, leaving at least 2 inches of potato. Using a sharp paring knife, carve out interior of each potato to create a “shot glass.” Carefully remove interior of potato to leave a wall of at least 1⁄8 inch. Thoroughly chill potato “shot glasses” in airtight container.
