  • Wash and scrub the potatoes leaving the skin on. Put them in a pan (try to arrange in a single layer) and add the salt and water to cover.
  • Bring to a boil and cook, partially covered, on a low heat, until tender. It should take about 20 minutes, depending on the size of your potatoes.
  • Pour off the water and keep cooking over a very low heat until the potatoes are dry and they skins are wrinkled. Don't forget to shake the pan occasionally so the potatoes don't burn. Serve with some sauce. Enjoy!


This recipe works the best with new potatoes because of the thin skin.
