Perfect Fingerling Potatoes


  • 1 teaspoon Kosher or Rock Salt
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1 1/2 lbs small fingerling potatoes, washed
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly chopped chives


  • In a large pot, combine the salt, water and potatoes and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, approx. 25-30 minutes. Remove from the pot to a cooling rack and let stand for 5-7 minutes. Serve as is or with butter, pepper or chives.
