Salt Potatoes~ - Page 2

post #21 of 28

I've done them that way with way less salt though. Maybe that's why they've always been just an average tater. More salt and more butter. Makes sense to me.

Pops,

 

Just noticed this in your sig.

 

My Mom has been making these for as long as I can remember. She uses little reds.

 

The only thing different is that she pokes each tater a couple times with a fork before dropping into the boiling water and then leaves them in the water to cool from boiling to serving temp. As they cool they suck in more salty goodness!

Great tip!  They have always been a big favorite at Town, City, County and State Fairs; possibly she attended one in the area before coming to your current state.  With SMF's help worldwide, maybe we can promote them as a permanent fixture at all gatherings anywhere in the world!  After all, potatoes are available in almost every part of the world.  I'm sure Hinerwadel's wouldn't mind, lol!   http://www.hinerwadelsinc.com/home.nxg  They originated them in Syracuse, NY.

I grew up in CNY and my parents brought us 3 bags of these when  they came down for turkey day. My wife just made salt tater homefries this morning!!!! There is NOTHING like them.

This is my favorite part of fairs in northern PA.  The furthest south I've seen them is the State College area.  I have never tried to make them myself but I have always thought about it.  I may have to give it a shot one of these days.

I love salt potatoes!!!
They're not just a northern NY thing, they are a big deal here in the southern tier too.
Hinerwadel’s salt taters have been sold here for as long as I can remember.

Oh yes, they originated in Syracuse, NY... "Salt City" - as salt was such an abundant resource, and sold all over NYS and into adjoining states too!  Anyone visiting the State Fair in Syracuse knows them well!
