- Peel the potatoes and cut them into 4 pieces or into 2-3 pieces if they are smaller.
- Score each piece with a knife in 2-3 places.
- Transfer to a pot and add the juice of 2 lemons plus the actual squeezed lemons used.
- Add salt, pepper and 1 ½ liters of water and bring to a boil.
- Boil for 10 minutes, until the potatoes soften a little.
- When ready, drain, remove the lemons and allow all of the steam to evaporate from the potatoes. In this way they will release all of the moisture.

- Turn the potatoes every 10 minutes so that they can become golden evenly.
- When ready, remove from oven and serve.
