The Younger Daughter’s potato suggestion

leave a comment »

Her general instructions are to use a 400ºF oven and parchment paper in the baking sheet (roasted eggplant, for example, will stick to foil and not to parchment paper). For fingerling potatoes, she mixes olive oil, salt, fresh rosemary, and crushed garlic in a plastic bag, then adds to potatoes, squishes the bag to coat them, and let them sit a few hours before roasting. I used my good mortar and pestle to pound together the salt, rosemary, and garlic, and then adding just a little olive oil and pounding some more to make a paste. It works best if you mince the garlic and the rosemary needles before you add them to the mortar, getting them part-way to the goal, as it were.

Here they are on the quarter-sheet baking sheet. (The usual baking sheet for home cooking is a half-sheet.)
