One needs to boil Diamond potatoes till they are crumbly before they can be examined


Explanation:
'Diamanten' = Diamond potatoes (it's a specific type of potato, grown in Holland by Dutch farmers)
'voordat' = before ('voor' in the Dutch sentence that you gave is not correct, it might make clear what they mean, but it's incorrect use of Dutch)
'koken' = 'boil'
'Afkoken' however = boiling potatoes till they are crumbly

'One needs to boil Diamond potatoes till they are crumbly before they can be examined' = 'Diamanten moet men afkoken voordat ze onderzocht kunnen worden'

Good luck!


    I'm Dutch and like crumbly boiled Diamond potatoes :)

Man soll Diamant Kartoffeln krümelig kochen bevor sie untersucht werden


Explanation:
'Diamant Kartoffeln sollte man krümelig kochen bevor sie untersucht werden' = 'Diamanten moeten men afkoken voordat ze onderzocht worden'

Diamanten = Diamant Kartoffeln (= Diamond potatoes)
Afkoken = krümelig kochen (= boil
crumbly)

And here's the german translation :)
