Years ago i enjoyed the taste of Rosin cooked potatos.  Can't find them
anymore.  I believe that the process was abandoned because of the danger from
exploding potatoes.  I also understand that the kits that were once sold to
cook them with rosin was declared illegal.  

Does anyone know how it was done?  Where does one obtain the rosin?  Surely in
this modern age one could figure out how to avoid the old problems and bring
back this delicious treat.

Rosin is sold in music stores, for the bows of string instruments.  I
never heard of it being used for cooking.

Yes, it's almost like amber.  Joy of Cooking used to have a recipe for
resin-baked potatoes.
