I had never heard of Salt Potatoes before seeing a reference to them by BookChickDi (one of my co-participants in the wonderful link up by Beth Fish Reads called Weekend Cooking).
After doing a bit of research I found that these potatoes are a speciality of Syracuse, New York. They were simple to cook. I used small ordinary boiling potatoes – next time I'll wait for the tiny new potatoes.
To cook Salt Potatoes all that is different from normal boiling is that you use 1 part salt to every 6 parts of water – that's a whole lot of salt.
The potatoes weren't over salty and tasted good served with lashings of melted butter.
