- Potatoes are very high in potassium but you can remove part of the potassium by using one of these methods:
- Double cook method: Peel and dice potatoes. Place in a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Drain the water and add fresh water to the pot. Bring to a boil, cook for 10 minutes then drain and set aside.
- Leaching method: Peel and dice potatoes. Place in a large pot of warm tap water and soak for 2 to 4 hours. Drain and set aside.
- Dry potatoes well before adding to hot oil.
- If no salt added ketchup is substituted for regular ketchup sodium will be reduced to 7 milligrams per serving. (Avoid brands containing potassium chloride).
