    1 large russet potato
    canola oil
    kosher salt

    DIRECTIONS for "How to make a baked potato"

    Heat oven to 350°F and position racks in top and bottom thirds.
    Wash potato (or potatoes) thoroughly with a stiff brush and cold running water.
    Dry, then using a standard fork poke 8 to 12 deep holes all over the spud so that moisture can escape during cooking.
    Place in a bowl and coat lightly with oil.
    Sprinkle with kosher salt and place potato directly on rack in middle of oven.
    Place a baking sheet (I put a piece of aluminum foil) on the lower rack to catch any drippings.
    Bake 1 hour or until skin feels crisp but flesh beneath feels soft.
    Serve by creating a dotted line from end to end with your fork, then crack the spud open by squeezing the ends towards one another.
    It will pop right open.
    But watch out, there will be some steam.
