  1. Bring pot of water to boil
  2. While water is heating, cut each potato into 6 wedges
  3. Add potatoes to water, allow water to return to boil, and allow to simmer for approximately 5 minutes. Test with fork at 3 minutes. Should still be firm and we do not want the potatoes to be soft. Remove before they get soft.
