For real authentic Upstate NY flavor use 1 cup of salt. Try these for your next BBQ or crab boil! YUM! Leftovers can be used for home fries.

I am not a huge fan of potatoes, but I was looking for an easy potato recipe that could feed a lot, or a little. I tried this recipe and only cooked about 10 red skinned new potatoes. They were really very good, the salt gets into the flesh of the potato without being too salty. Between the salt, and the creaminess of the potatoes I found the butter superfluous. Great, will use this recipe again.
