DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and scrub the potatoes removing any dirt, eyes, etc. Cut each in half, then cut each half into chunks.
  • Bring a quart of water to a boil, lower the heat to medium, and place the potatoes in the pot. Cover and let cook for 20-25 minutes or until tender (able to poke a fork in it) but not mushy like you're making mashed potatoes.
  • Drain all the water off the potatoes, let them sit in the colander for about 5 minutes to dry out.
  • Place the sugar on a frying pan and heat it up until it gets all melty. Stir in the butter or margarine when this happens.
  • When this mixture reaches a rich golden color, remove from the heat and carefully roll the potato pieces in it to fully coat them each in the caramel sauce.
  • This is recommended served with leg of lamb roasted in cream and flour, I don't eat meat so I'd probably eat this basic salt and pepper tofu. :D.
