"Country Skillet" Baby Red Skin Potatoes
Serves 6
These baby potatoes have become more widely available and can now be found almost all year round. They are characterized by their rosy red skin, but generally have a white/creamy flesh. Red potatoes have a firm, smooth and moist texture, making them well suited for salads, roasting, boiling and steaming. They hold up particularly in soups, stews, and chowders. Round reds are often referred to as “new potatoes”; however, technically, “new” refers to any variety of potatoes that is harvested before reaching maturity. The recipe below is particularly suited to the Baby Red Skin Potato as it can handle the tossing and combining of multiple ingredients while maintaining its shape and delicious texture when roasted.
