Friday Recipe: New Potatoes Poached in White Wine

I chose this recipe because of a very important ingredient: wine. I've made new potatoes in a variety of ways, mostly with a fresh herb mix, though with butter isn't bad, either. However what I liked about this was the wine. That and the fact that I love growing potatoes (they're so easy!) and think this recipe will make it into my year-round (virtual) recipe box.

6 good sized new potatoes, scrubbed real good
4 tbsp. butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 c. white wine (add to taste!)
  • Scrub your potatoes good and chop.
  • Melt the butter at medium heat. Use a heavy skillet that has a good fitting lid.
  • Fry the potatoes until they're just about done, put the garlic in with the potatoes, turn the heat up to high for a minute or so, and pour the wine over the potatoes.
  • Immediately cover the skillet with the lid and reduce the heat to medium.
  • Poach for at least 5-7 minutes.
  • Stir if necessary after steam has subsided to keep from burning.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley. You can also sprinkle Cheddar cheese or Parmesan on these to change the character of the dish.


  1. This sounds wonderful, but no picture!

  2. I rarely remember to take one when I make things but I don't think this recipe came with one. Pity.
