Tiny, sweet fingerling potatoes



Fingerling potatoes, tiny and sweet, are abundant at farmers markets now.

You’ll find them in a variety of colors — red, purple and creamy yellow. They make the perfect side for any meat, poultry or fish dish and, because of their tiny size, are kid-pleasers, too.

Try some out in this recipe, the name of which says it all.
