    Oh wow, never heard of them

  • George Greener on July 27, 2020

    There's a place in Connecticut that serves these and calls them "Salty Balls".

  • Chris Gauris, Sr on August 3, 2020

    Thanks John we love our salt potatoes here in Syracuse! Go Orange.

    If you live next to the ocean, just run on down and grap a pot fill of water from there, then only add one cup of salt🙂

  • carollol on August 23, 2020

    Otherwise every hospital would have a baked potato wing. 🤣 THAT is why i love your cooking video's!

    It’s osmosis. The high salinity in the water draws out moisture from the potatoes basically breaking the potato cells on the inside making a mash (why they’re creamy) which is why you must not break the skin.

  • Lawrence Taylor on September 22, 2020

    We had a Georgia Pit Restaurant near our house. They would use Pine Tar and cook their potatoes in that. Quite the taste.

    yum yum looks good

  • Vikotnick on October 3, 2020

    This is like Papas Arrugadas from the Canaries. Instead of butter, I would recommend Mojo Picon (red)… It's something that I eat everytime I go there.
    Also, the true ones there are made with sea water so no measurement of salt needed. 🙂

  • Edward Samuel Miliband on October 4, 2020

    This is just canarian potatoes but Americans are pretending they did it first

  • joeykong94 on October 8, 2020

    Iv lived in Syracuse my whole life so it’s so strange to realize people all over America people don’t have these

  • Katie Deep Beep on October 11, 2020

    These are delicious! Resembles lobster…

  • Shred Tele Man on November 12, 2020

    Where this type of boiled potato comes from, usually served with steamed clams. Note: Onondaga Lake is a salt lake and one of the earliest colonial salt factories was in Liverpool, NY… 2-3 miles from Syracuse, where I grew up. https://ontarioorchards.com/product/hinerwadels-salt-potatoes/

    I love this guys voice, and i can listen to all day 🙂

  • John Scannell on December 24, 2020

    Just made my first batch, thank you Chef John just as advertised and just as good as you said

  • philip rea on January 10, 2021

    i used to boil a lot of crawfish. this looks like the same kind of thing that happens there to new potatoes except it can be done in the kitchen and without all the fuss of the discarding the crawfish – chef john ill be looking for an in kitchen pseudo crawfish boil with or without the fish in your anthology, and if i dont find it… well… im sure ill see it soon. oh and also what can be done for seafood boils in the kitchen? how do you make em amazing?

    Wait. People think potato eyes are toxic?

  • Doctor Dungus on January 22, 2021

    I like margarine more than butter, and there's literally nothing you can do to stop me.

  • Allison P on January 23, 2021

    Do not stir them. Geez, I got yelled at for doing that. And you need lots of butter! I've never seen them served like an appetizer. They didn't mine the salt in Syracuse. The salt came from salt springs. The water was boiled to get to the salt. The workers would boil potatoes in the water for their lunch.

  • Shaun Portlock on January 26, 2021

    England here. They look nice, especially with our Jersey royals.

  • Kal Palnicki on January 31, 2021

    I actually went swimming in the dead sea. Very strange.

  • Relaxolotl on February 25, 2021

    Sorry, I’m lactose intolerant and real butter hurts my stomach. I’ll try these with margarine.

  • Gail Mills on March 1, 2021

    I tried these potatoes for dinner tonight. They were even more delicious than I expected them to be.

  • jack Dorsey on March 9, 2021

    My Sainted Mother would freak out at the amount of salt . I on the other hand been known to empty the shaker

  • Scott Mattson on March 20, 2021

    so good

  • Billy Jack Booted Thug on March 22, 2021

    These are “papas arrugadas”, wrinkly potatoes, Canary island style, fishermen would boil their potatoes in ocean water. You are welcome, Syracuse Irish miners.

  • Sam D on March 23, 2021

    but what if the nonexistent potato eye wing at the hospital is really the cancer wing?

  • Mike Clarke on March 24, 2021

    "7 years later". They ARE delicious and super easy.

  • Rasheed Al Kotob on March 31, 2021

    Chef John’s videos are so soothing. The voice, the delicious food. This is my meditation 🙂

  • Tamsone Barley on March 31, 2021

    can’t wait to try!

  • karl liebknecht on May 9, 2021

    oh something from Sicilly, WOW, i love Sicilly
    "Syracuse, New York…" ._.

    And Margarine is good

  • PLK on May 9, 2021

    After they were cooked and had that nice dusty appearance I'd cut them in half. No double dipping in the butter dish.

  • Sarah Engel on June 7, 2021

    I'm from Rochester, and much like Syracuse, salt potatoes are essential for any cookout. They're practically required for any Boy Scout or church BBQ chicken dinner in the area.

  • Paxtez on June 7, 2021

    I made this, just a 1/2 batch. Was very good. This is totally be in my rotation from now on.

  • David on June 17, 2021

    Potatoes have been boiled in brine in Mexico, Central and South America for centuries. Irish miners didn't invent this.

  • erizabeta on July 19, 2021

    I bet these taste good as heck

  • Les Reed on July 28, 2021

    Fondue dipping station with cheese and good delicious revenge

  • Carl Stineman on July 30, 2021

    The next time you make these and you get tired of dunking the potatoes and playing with the salt around the edges, check the temperature of the boiling water. It will be significantly higher than 212 (boiling point elevation), sort of a poor man's pressure cooker.

  • angelique82mon on August 13, 2021

    I moved to Syracuse 6 years ago and discovered these. I have introduced them to all my family in other states now. It’s so simple! Potatoes, salt, butter! Why are they so good!

  • Phil Bauer on September 28, 2021

    There are also some good Instant Pot recipes for this dish.

  • grayghost on October 18, 2021

    Did some graduate work at Syracuse University and these potatoes are the very best! We have a family dinner coming up and salt potatoes will definitely be on the menu.

  • Jacksirrom on October 25, 2021

    just did this recipe with the proportions mentioned – i think it needs more salt in solution than Chef John says.

  • James Tarr on November 17, 2021

    Ooops. Cut my potatoes before I got to the "don't cut your potatoes" part.

  • Andy B on January 19, 2022

    Using "nerdlinger" and "juxtaposition" in the same thought is IMpressIVE, John
