If you’ve ever made a baked potato in the microwave, you know it tastes dry and, well like a baked potato cooked in the microwave. Cook your potato in this 100% cotton microwave bag (thank you friend Donna at Jim’s Vacuum and Sewing for this idea!)and you will think it was cooked for an hour in a 350 degree oven! To use this bag, place the potato in the bag and cook for 6 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave. And don’t pierce the potato first, just put it in!
This is about a 15 minute craft, so if you need a last minute gift, this one is perfect.
