Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
"In the San Luis Valley of southern Colorado, late fall was harvest time for potatoes. As a young child, I would go with my mother and grandmother to glean the tiny red potatoes left behind by the harvester. These would become the tastiest morsels, sautéed and combined with various seasonings that the women of the house always had on hand." -TM
