New York Salt Potatoes

Have you ever had these out at restaurants? The perfect little red potatoes all smothered in butter and nice and salty!  Oh man, I love them!!! So does Gray so I decided to try and make them at home! This recipe is from Baked In.

3 lbs baby red potatoes (do NOT peel them)
2 quarts water
1 1/2 cups kosher or fine sea salt
6 Tbsp butter (Cut into small cubes)
Fresh herbs (I used a bit of chopped parsley)
Pepper to taste

In a large pot boil the water with the salt. Stir the water to dissolve some of the salt letting the rest settle on the bottom.  Add the potatoes and bring to a boil over medium hight heat. Lower the temperature and let the potatoes simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain and let the potatoes rest for 3 to 4 minutes. Add back to the pot with butter, pepper and herbs. Serve warm.
