“This recipe is from Alton Brown's Eat This Rock! You cook the potatoes in heavily salted water and the salt crystallizes on the outside of the potatoes. It seems like a lot of salt but it works. The reviews rave over it! I have slightly adapted it. They are even good cold!”

Directions

  1. In a large pot, combine the salt, water, and potatoes and bring to a boil.
  2. Cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.
  3. Remove from the pot to a cooling rack and let stand for 5 to 7 minutes. The salt crystals will form on the outside of the potatoes.
  4. Serve as is, or with butter, pepper, chopped scallions, or Parmesan cheese.
