The first time I saw fingerling potatoes, I was confused in a Danish supermarket. I was looking for the large potatoes I was visually familiar seeing of American produce. Produce and meat in Denmark are expensive, small and imperfect. The taste far exceeds American food. I returned to the United States with a determined effort to shop at farmer’s market than the average grocery store, when time permits. The fingerling potatoes in Denmark had a thin paper shell, similar to an onion or a tomatillo, that needs to be rubbed or peeled off before prepping for a dish. The small size, like most produce and meat, produces a sweet and tender taste. Get the recipe at My Life Runs on Food.
