  • 2 pounds baby new potatoes scrubbed clean
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh mint chop first, then measure
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper


  • Place new potatoes in a large sauce pan with cold water and cover by 1 inch.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and gently simmer covered, for approximately 15 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the largest potato comes is easily pierced and slightly tender. Test a few potatoes if they are very different in size. Don't over-cook. (Time will vary depending on the size of the potatoes)
  • Remove from heat, drain water, then re-cover the pot and let the potatoes "dry out" a bit, covered for about 5 minutes.
  • Toss with butter until it's completely melted. Toss with fresh mint. Season with salt and pepper.
