“Cooking small red potatoes in a super-saturated salt solution creates an incredibly creamy, well-seasoned potato interior. After the potatoes are par cooked, “smash” them to expose some of the potato flesh, brush them with malt vinegar, and roast them on a well-oiled sheet pan until the exposed surface is golden brown and delicious”

  1. Place oven rack in upper-middle position. Heat oven to 500 degrees. Set wire rack in a rimmed baking sheet.
