  1. COOKING POTATOES: Scrub skins and remove dark spots. Do not peel. Cut into cubes. Place in 2 qt. pan; rinse with cool water until it runs clear. Drain. Cover and cook on MEDIUM heat until water seal is formed and lid spins freely. Reduce to LOW and cook 8 minutes. Test for doneness. If additional time is needed, cover and allow to sit off-heat until fork tender. Transfer to storage bowl and refrigerate until cool.
  2. COOKING EGGS: Place a wet paper towel in bottom of 1 qt pan. Place eggs on towel. Cover and cook on MEDIUM until water seal is formed and lid spins freely. Reduce heat to LOW and cook 13 minutes. Remove from heat, remove paper towel, rinse with cool water. With a small amount of water in pan and cover on, shake the eggs. This will break the shells and loosen the egg for easy peeling. Peel and refrigerate until cool.
