Alton Brown's Perfect Fingerling Potatoes

Alton Brown's Perfect Fingerling Potatoes

1 1/4 pounds kosher or rock salt
2 quarts water
2 pounds small fingerling potatoes, cleaned
4 tablespoons butter, optional
Freshly ground black pepper, optional
1 tablespoon freshly chopped chives, optional

In a large pot, combine the salt, water, and potatoes and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, approximately 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the pot to a cooling rack and let stand for 5 to 7 minutes. Serve as is or with butter, pepper, or chives.

Notes: The lovely thing about this recipe is the good clear taste of the potatoes. These came from a local farmers' market, and this was a great way to appreciate them.

1 1/4 *pounds* of salt? Really?

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could undeniably be one of the very best in its field. Wonderful blog!

At this time it looks like Wordpress is the top blogging platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a amazing job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera. Exceptional Blog!
