Rosy New Potatoes

This quick and easy dish of tiny new potatoes is perfect for spring! I like to prepare fresh asparagus with these potatoes. The rosy potatoes and the fresh green asparagus just says "Spring!"



  • 18 small new potatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp. minced onion
  • 1 Tbsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup dairy sour cream


Scrub the new potatoes with a vegetable brush. Remove a strip of peeling from around the middle of each potato. Place the potatoes in a skillet

In a small bowl, combine the water, minced onion, paprika, and salt. Stir to combine. Pour over the potatoes. Bring this to a boil. Then cover, and lower heat.

Simmer for 35 to 40 minutes, until the water is gone, and the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.

Add white vinegar to the skillet of potatoes. Cover and cook an additional minute, and remove from heat.

Add the sour cream. Spoon around so that each potato is covered. The paprika will turn the sour cream to a nice Rosy color. Serve while hot.


Servings: 4 to 6
Time:15 minutes minutes Preparation Time
40 minutes Cooking Time
