Rock Salt-Roasted Potatoes
Roasting potatoes in a bed of rock salt produces evenly cooked spuds with buttery-soft flesh and firm skin. We used fingerlings, but any small potato will work, including Alex, Pink Fir Apple, Baby Red, or German Butter. You don't want the potatoes to touch when baking, so the rock salt should fill in spaces between the potatoes, as well as bury them.
