Most people don’t know you can plant potatoes twice in a year. Once in spring for those gorgeous “new potatoes” that everyone covets and again in fall. There is nothing better than fresh potatoes with their sweet flesh and papery thin skins. Simplicity really is the spice of life.

Buttery and Garlicy New Potatoes

  • 1 lb new baby potatoes, about the size of a pingpong ball or slightly larger
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Wash potatoes well in salted water. Boil until tender when poked with a fork. Drain and return to their pan. Add butter and garlic. Toss to coat the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
