How to boil potatoes:
peel and wash potatoes. cut into small chunks ( about 1 inch chunks ), place in a medium size  pot ( I use a dutch oven) . Fill pot with cold water enough that it covers the potatoes. Add 1 Tbsp of salt to the water. Place on high heat until potatoes come to a boil ( you may have to turn heat down a bit if potatoes start to boil up over). Boil for about 20 minutes or until potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork, if there is tension the are not yet ready.. boil an additional 5-10 minutes. Once potatoes are ready place a strainer in a clean sink and pour potatoes into strainer. Follow above recipe for chive and onion mashed potatoes.
