I have a question about the recipe "Campfire Potatoes" from Adam Rapoport. Great recipe! Is there any reason why I couldn't cook the potatoes and assemble the packets at home, then bring them in our camping cooler for a weekend trip?
Good information, thank you.
So glad I asked--thanks for the quick response!
ChefOno is 100% correct. Potatoes, handled incorrectly, are breeding grounds for very nasty pathogens. Many believe that the culprit in "Potato Salad" food poisoning is the mayonnaise, but in actuality it is the potatoes. Rice, Potatoes, and many starches are behind many cases of illnesses, all remedied by rapid cool downs and proper temperature storage-usually the main culprits.
