Red potatoes from the Farmers Market!

We went to the Farmers Market in Havre, Montana last Saturday. The Market runs each Saturday during the Summer from 8:00AM to Noon. When we went a few weeks ago I found the most fabulous, very small red potatoes. OMG, they were delicious! Here's how I prepared them one night:

Put the potatoes in water and boil (gently!) until they are tender. Drain and remove the potatoes. In the same pan, pour a little olive oil (or a lot) and add red pepper flakes - as many as you can stand! Add a bay leaf - yes, a bay leaf and wait until you smell that bubbling away in the olive oil!

Dice, or press, a few cloves of garlic, depending on how much you love or hate garlic. I used one huge clove for 8 rather small potatoes. Don't add this to the oil yet - garlic tends to become bitter if cooked too long.

Once the pepper flakes and bay leaf become aromatic, add the cooked potatoes. Add some parsley (fresh or dried) and some chopped rosemary (fresh or dried). Add your garlic now and grate some fresh black pepper into the pan and give it a shake now and then so the potatoes get to roll all around in that yummy oil. Keep them on medium heat on the stove until you're ready to eat.

Serve with butter or sour cream to your liking. Yummy!
