Gourmet and Fingerling Potatoes

Whether you are cooking small gourmet potatoes or fingerling potatoes, you are going to love this recipe. At first, the salt might seem a little scary, but these potatoes are tender and creamy on the inside with a mild slightly salty crust on the outside. They are by no means overly salty, but the secret is to not cut the potatoes.



1 lb Kosher salt (NOT table salt)
2 – 1/2 quarts water
2 lbs gourmet or fingerling potatoes, cleaned
4 T butter, optional
Freshly ground black pepper, optional



  1. In a large pot, bring the water, salt and potatoes to a boil.
  2. Continue cooking the potatoes on a slow boil for approximately 20 – 25 minutes, until fork tender.
  3. Using tongs, remove the cooked potatoes and place on a wire cooling rack to dry; let stand for about 5 minutes. As the potatoes dry, the salt crust will form.
  4. Serve hot potatoes with butter and freshly ground pepper if desired.
