New York Salt Potato Recipe

Friday, June 26, 2015

A fairly easy recipe starting in the early 1800s somewhere around Syracuse New York, these spuds were often made for lunch by the workers there.

The potatoes are rich in buttery flavor and can be a perfect side when having a delicious seafood feast! One of my favorites and often made here in Florida with lobster or crab
