Today we are linking up to share our twist on regional recipes or dishes that are popular where we live.  For those of you that don’t know, I live in Central New York which is used to broadly describe the central region of New York State and is made up of about 7 counties surrounding the city of Syracuse, NY.  

There are actually a lot of dishes that are unique to this region including Utica Greens, Chicken Riggies, Spiedie Sandwiches and Salt Potatoes which are probably the most popular.  

For those of you that have no idea on earth what a salt potato is, let me explain. 

First of all it’s important to know that Syracuse is known for it’s history of salt production which is also why it’s nicknamed “the Salt City”.  We don’t have a lot else going on here so we have all sorts of pride about salt and salt potatoes.  It’s kinda our thing. 

Salt potatoes are exactly what they sound like- potatoes that are boiled in a brine of salt.  It all started out when some salt miners decided to boil potatoes in salt for lunch then eventually sometime during the 1900’s some guy named Hinderwadel decided to sell the idea, bagged some potatoes along with 12oz of salt and the rest is history.

Today you can buy the sack of potatoes and 12 oz of salt in a bag that looks like this.  You literally just boil salt water, add the potatoes and 20 mins later you have yourself some salty spuds.

For today’s recipe, I decided to do it a little differently.  I ditched the sack of salt for some quality truffle salt and exchanged traditional butter for some Rich & Creamy Melt Organic Butter to make them both sophisticated and deliciously dairy free.
