The day after Faith posted about Teeny Tiny New Potatoes with Lemon, I was at the Berkeley Bowl market and came across a bag of marble potatoes. I’d never seen them before! Marble potatoes are really any variety of potato that is dug up while still young and well, marble-sized.

I just love them because of their size and ease – they require almost no prep. I tried them boiled and roasted; in both scenarios, I didn’t have to cut them up or anything, and they went straight from the storage box to the stove/oven to my plate, where I simply popped them in my mouth. How did they taste? Tender and flavorful! I love this – no chopping, slicing, or dicing. These little guys are ready to go, skins and all.
