My grandparents gave me about 3 pounds of beautiful new potatoes from their garden. They are so crisp, golden, and inviting. The thin skin is one of the best parts of the potatoes and should NEVER be removed. When I was cutting them into chunks, they were so crisp it sounded like I was slicing apples.
I wanted a simple way to prepare these potatoes that would be just as special as they are. The truffle oil is a nice background, strong support flavor. MMMMM!!!!
