I would like to see a designated page for cooking questions. If there is one already please direct me. I have a question right now.

When a recipe calls for grated parmesean (?) cheese, is it grated in the can like for Pizza, or is it grated like say, cheddar cheese?



 

Peeling Potatoes

I have been tasked with peeling 15 lbs of potatoes for mashed potatoes. I heard that if you boil them first and then immerse them into ice water then the skins come right off. True? If so, here see my questions:

1. Do you boil the potatoes until they are done for mashing or do you par-boil them and then peel and then boil them again.

2. What are the times for par-boiling and then for the second reheat?

3. Should you add salt and oil to either the 1st or 2nd hearings?

Thank you in advance for any fast answers to the above. I need to do this tonight.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Kindest regards,
Tommy

I had the butcher cut up one of my turkeys to use for left overs. Now, I don't know how long to cook it. Any ideas, it's 12 pounds?
