Using a medium sized pot, fill with enough cold water to cover the potatoes by 2 inches. Add the potatoes and 1 tablespoon of salt in the pot, cover with a lid, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and move the cover slightly to the side to let a little steam out. Simmer for 35 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
