  2. Cook the potato on medium heat on the stove, you can't go wrong. Do not cover frying pan. Do not to cook more than one layer at a time. Do not add water when cooking, potato will have a mealy taste. Never put your potatoes that you get at the store in the refrigerator, as this will cause them to have a grainy texture.
