Syracuse Salt Potatoes

Postby Schuarta on Thu Apr 28, 2011 9:16 pm

Anyone ever tried Syracuse Salt Potatoes? :covri:

Make a brine disolving salt in heated water until no more desolves. Boil small washed new potatoes for 15 minutes. Drain. Pour melted butter (salted or salt free?) over and enjoy. :confused:

I haven't but am considering. :rolleyes:

Papas Arrugadas

I have not had the Syracuse style potatoes, but it reminds me of the "wrinkled
potatoes" that I had on the island of Tenerife. I had them several times with both sauces and they were quite good.

That's virtually the same thing, but my recipe didn't have the sauces (mojos).

Papas Arrugadas

Postby mojo on Sat Apr 30, 2011 1:42 pm

The difference in the two recipes is that in the Papas Arrugadas recipe dry heat is applied to the pan of potatoes after the salted water is drained. This is what causes the "wrinkling" affect and a thin layer of salt to appear on the the potato skin. This changes the appearance of the potato and also the texture of the potato skin. Look at the photo of the potatoes in the link to the recipe. You will see what I'm writing about. You will not get the same effect if you do not apply dry heat to the pan of potatoes.

Thanks for posting this recipe. It reminded me of how much I enjoy the Papas Arrugadas. I have some small red potatoes that will be "wrinkled" soon and eaten for dinner.
