Jacket potato or boiled

Hi there,
It explains it in one of the books but not very well as I was confused for a while.

I always confuse myself when I try and explain this but here goes . . . :D

If you are cooking a jacket potato at home you would weigh it raw before you cook it (well I would), for example a 250g potato (raw weight) would be 5 propoints.

50g Raw Potato = 1 Propoint.

It mentions it a different way in the book because sometimes we buy these when we eat out, we can't weigh them before they are cooked so on average it would be about 8 ppts because the water evaporates as its cooking which would make it shrink down so technically its a bigger spud to start with approximately a 400g spud.

I hope this made some sense to you :) I just stick to cooking them myself and weighing them at 50g Raw Potato = 1 Propoint.

Hope I've helped somehow.
Good luck xxx
