    Have you made it to the state fair yet? We went last saturday (record crowd). I got my salt potatoes and got my sausage and peppers from Dino bbq. We saw Adam Richman from the show "man vs. food". It was a great time.

    I grew up on these potatoes in Rochester, New York and upstatevoyager has it right on the money. For those of you who aren't getting it, these potatoes are really small, bite size.
    "Salt potatoes are a regional specialty of Syracuse, New York, a.k.a. The Salt City. Salt potatoes date to the 1800s, invented by local salt mine workers who created a simple and inexpensive lunch by boiling small potatoes in brine. The potatoes are still very popular today with the Central New York crowd, making an incredibly easy and delicious side dish."

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE potatoes! You can also add a little crab boil liquid to the water...that's how we do it down here when we boil crawfish or crabs..and the leftovers make a fantastic potatoe salad!

    Yes they really serve these at the state fair.. you get them in a container like hot dogs come in.. they are very small, 2-3 bites. the salt drys on the outside of the potato when you take them out of the water.. put lots of butter on and if at the fair eat with your fingers. now I want some!!!

    Do they really serve this at State fairs? That's interesting. Do you mash up or slice the potato before you add the butter to it, or is it served whole with melted butter over the top? I'm just curious since the recipe is for boiled and salted potatoes. Any kind of potato with butter on it has to be good! Thanks for posting your recipe! Now I want a potato for dinner!

    Around these parts of Upstate NY, we can buy the potatoes and salt in one bag at the grocery stores. It has 4 pound of potatoes and 12 ounces of salt. These are great hot and cooled, they make a great potato salad!
