I have been asked to do some cookery teaching with a group of young people
with some learning difficulties. The subject (don't laugh please) is "101
things to do with jacket potatoes". I want to do fairly simple things. Do
you know of a site or a source (sauce) of information where I can get some
ideas. Any help gratefully appreciated.

What about preparing different toppings for the potatoes? Baked beans, 
bacon and cheddar cheese, sour cream with butter, etc.

I would start from the beginning -

what about different cooking methods - in barbi wrapped in foil, in oven, in
microwave etc I'm sure there are more ...and compare different textures etc,
my other half hates microwaved potaotes  but adores oven baked ones.  My mum
salts them and wraps them in foil before baking - I don't bother, my nan
does and leaves them to sit for 10 mins before cutting and serving,
alledgedly to rest like she does with meat, I don't bother with this either.

Also try different types of potatoe and get them to work out which variety
is their favourite

Also as a variation of the fillings idea - what about potatoe skins....

if you get bored there is always potatoe printing - I guess you could use
food colouring to keep it foodie!

just a few ideas, let us know how you get on...
