Salt potatoes are an original dish of Syracuse, New York. They are typically served in the summer months. They have become a staple food at local and state fairs. They are quick and easy to make for picnics, parties, and barbecue's. We can purchase them locally by the bag which also comes with a package of salt.
What makes salt potatoes taste so good? As the potatoes cook, the salty water forms a crust on the skin. This crust seals the potatoes so they never taste water-logged like ordinary boiled potatoes often do. It also gives these potatoes a unique texture closer to fluffy baked potatoes, only creamier. The standard recipe calls for one pound of salt for every four pounds of potatoes.
1 16 oz. cup of kosher salt (large amount absolutely required)
6 cups of water
Unsalted melted butter
Fresh herbs for topping (optional)
