Recipe Notes

* New potatoes are simply smaller versions of their full-grown counterparts.  They are fresh from a garden and have never been placed in storage.  Available in both red and white, they taste best when boiled or steamed. The best way to tell a new potato is to rub the skin with your thumb.  The skin should be delicate and easy to scrape off.
