Chef John's Syracuse Salt Potatoes
In this video, you’ll see how to make incredibly tasty boiled whole baby potatoes. There are only two ingredients here—well, three if you count the water for boiling—so this video is all about technique. Do not be alarmed by the massive amount of kosher salt. The potatoes' skins prevent too much salt from being absorbed into the meat of the potatoes. They’ll emerge from the water with a fine dusting of salt and an amazing taste and texture you can’t get from basic boiled potatoes. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Syracuse Salt Potatoes. Enjoy them piping hot with a little melted butter.
