This recipe is so simple, that it’s almost not even considered a recipe. It’s based on the Ukrainian food tradition, where it’s served with herbs, bacon (salo) and Marinated Cucumbers. I want to also bring awareness to the fresh garden potatoes, they by far, taste better than the aged, store bought.
Young potatoes have a nice, fresh smell to them and they are firm in texture. Be sure not to overcook it. Bacon and herbs bring all of the flavors together, amazingly.
You can find fresh, garden potatoes at a local farmer’s markets; or if you are lucky enough, your mother’s or grandmother’s garden! 🙂
