My brother gave us two banana boxes full of beautiful red potatoes from his garden this fall. They are delicious! I am enjoying having fresh potatoes. :)
Recently, I gathered the smallest ones for Turkey Sausage and Kale Soup. It's fun to use tiny potatoes in soup and have them whole or just halved (not peeled). So pretty!
I brought my bowl of tiny potatoes into the kitchen and ran cold water over them to soak off some of the dirt. You know how dirty garden-fresh potatoes are, right? :)
After soaking them a while, it was time to scrub them. Normally my hands cramp up when scrubbing lots of tiny potatoes, so I came up with an alternative method that worked great.
Put the potatoes in a bowl with just enough water to cover them. Use a scrub brush to stir and scrub the potatoes in the bowl. Change the water as needed. Scrub and stir with the brush until potatoes are clean.
This took about 5 minutes for probably dozens of tiny potatoes! They were squeaky clean and made delicious soup. :)
