  1. Place potatoes in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat; simmer 2 minutes.
  3. Drain and let stand for 2 minutes.
  4. To clarify butter: Place 1/2 cup butter in a medium saucepan over medium low heat; cook 5 minutes or until butter is completely melted.

I can't believe these have never been review. They are fantastic. Didn't take hardly any time at all to cook either. Wonderful flavour, crispy on the outside and the inside was fluffy. I'll certainly be making these again real soon. Thanks for a delightful recipe. Made for "Let's PARTY" Tag 2009

These potatoes are so deliciously crispy and delightful. I made just a half recipe, with yukons that I had harvested from my garden today. Thanks also for the directions for the clarified butter as I had no idea it was so easy to prepare! I'll definitely be making these again and soon. Thanks Iris!
