I tried it.  It made my bow smell like a potato.

10 to 25 pounds of rosin ?  Rather expensive since a hunk of bow rosin can cost $30.00.

Where'd you dig up that recipe Toni ?

@Fiddlestix .. It was on a rosin site.   Who comes up with this stuff??? roflol

I mean I can't even imagine using that recipe.... especially since baked potatoes can be made so easy... even in a homemade solar energy box... Microwave... oven, grill.. etc... hummmmmm very very odd. surprisedamuse

I just thought to myself that was  almost the most odd thing I read yesterday.... so very very odd.

Too odd not to share... dazed

LOL @Uzi.....

I put my money on someone at the rosin factory couldn't wait until lunch or was leaning over a vat and the potato in his pocket fell out. Of course, that begs the question of why did he have a potato in his pocket?

$200 for 30lbs of rosin to melt and boil or bake or deep fry or whatever you would call it, to my potatoes is ridiculus.

Even a pound is $tooo much and probably wouldn't cover a potatoe anyway after you put the stuff in a pan.

ROTFLMAO....facepalm

Apparently Cracker Barrel cooks their potatoes that way?

also video:

 

 

Thinking about it, I see some advantages to using rosin:  in addition to sealing in the moisture of the potato, you can use the same rosin over and over again.  That would save a lot of water depending on how many times you can re-use the rosin.

Plus sealing the potatoes means that none of the nutrients would leech out and the potato would be better for you overall.

 

anyone up for pitching in for a Fiddlerman Potato Bake? lol  Admission 1 lb of pine rosin lol

I must be doing it wrong. Inside = Microwave / Outside = Grill or burry in fire pit.
