Boiled Potatoes with Butter and Chives
New potatoes can be boiled, buttered, and served hot as a side dish. In many ways, this is the best way to highlight the flavor of really good potatoes.
Why This Recipe Works
We found, while developing our boiled potatoes with butter recipe, that the best potatoes for boiling and buttering are less than 2 ½ inches in diameter. We boiled them with their skins on until a paring knife or skewer glided easily through one.
