Chef John's Syracuse Salt Potatoes
March 14, 2015

I grew up just north of Syracuse, and we had Hinerwadles salt potatoes every summer, and every time we drive back, we buy some, because they really can't be duplicated. However, this recipe comes pretty darn close. As another reviewer states, you must NOT cut the potatoes. They are meant to be eaten hot, with melted butter on the side. Don't let the amount of salt freak you out; they are delish with melted butter and corn on the cob at a barbecue or clambake, and you just get a salty zing! before you bite through to the wonderful, soft center. I miss very little about living outside SYR, and this is one of them.
