Parsleyed New Potatoes

We used a vegetable peeler to remove a band of peeling around the center of the potato. It's pretty and less difficult than trying to peel the entire potato, while still exposing children to a handy kitchen gadget. Add 1 minced garlic clove or use Old Bay or Cajun seasoning instead of salt and pepper to boost the flavor.

Bring potatoes and water to cover to a boil in a Dutch oven over medium heat, and cook 20 minutes or until tender. Drain and return to Dutch oven.
