Did you know that a number of popular foods were actually invented in the Finger Lakes (NY)? Salt potatoes - a perennial favorite - were first enjoyed by 19th-century salt miners on the shores of Onondaga Lake; Spiedies - a tender spicy sandwich - are native to Broome County and the ever-popular ice cream sundae was invented on a hot Sunday afternoon in Ithaca (NY) in 1897.

Now I'm going to have to make spiedies for dinner this week. :D

I've never had salt potatoes, are they too salty?

No Darlene, salt potatoes are very small potatoes (like new potatoes) and they come with a small bag of salt to put in while cooking. You can use as much or as little as you like. :D

This is what they look like in the store. But you can just use small potatoes.

Here is a recipe for them:

Salt Potatoes
As seen on WPTA-TV, 21Alive News at Noon and 5 PM
May 23, 1997

6 Servings


3 pounds small new ("creamer") potatoes
4 quarts water
1 cup salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
Place the potatoes and water in a large pot. Pour the salt over the potatoes, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender. Serve with the melted butter for dipping.
