Select small to medium sized potatoes, clean them, wrap fully in tin-foil, put them in an old metal biscuit tin or similar, then place in the fire.

To be sure they don’t burn, its best to keep the tins out of contact with open flames -near glowing coals/embers is the best way. Even better is to place a piece of heavy-duty wire meshing over the embers as level as you can get it so the tins are not in direct contact.

Cook for up to an hour, regularly making sure they are not burning and that they are cooking evenly.

A real ‘art’ to master!
