i am learning to make American dish and i ma now making parmesan chicken which i ma now a pro at and bake potatoes and last time i made the potatoes they had no salt so i just cut the potatoes and put them in salt water added with pepper and some garlic powder. but my question is do i suppose to put them in salt water or not and can that surely add salt to them? i need so quick answer i am making earlier dinner and lunch because i have class at 3:30 pm so i am starting my cooking now so someone please help. i am breaking away from my ethnic cooking it is too expensive.

ps: they have been soaking so like 10 minutes already. i am planning on leaving them for 30 minutes before baking them under the stove.

baked potatoes are just baked in the oven and salt is added after they are done, along with butter, sour cream or whatever you like...if you are making mashed potatoes, boilin water until tender, then mash with milk and butter, adding salt to taste...just out of curiosity, what is your ethnicity?

What kind of potatoes are you making?

When I boil potatoes, I never add salt to the water. I add all seasoning after they are cooked.
