Summertime Baked Potatoes

Baked Potato

The days are getting warmer and a hot oven can make the kitchen pretty uncomfortable.  Here’s a trick for baking potatoes without heating up the kitchen. 

Prepare the potatoes as usual by rubbing with olive oil, sprinkling with salt, wrapping in foil, and piercing a few times with a fork.  Then place them in a crock pot set on high for a few hours or low for a longer roast.  They cook up beautifully, becoming nice and sweet with the long slow roast.  I imagine that this should work for roasting other things wrapped in foil as well.  Please comment if you have any experience to add.
