Balsamic-Glazed Roasted Potatoes

In preparation for the birthday brunch I'm making for a friend, I roasted sweet potatoes, purple potatoes, and new potatoes in a balsamic glaze. This versataile recipe is a cinch to make and just as tasty cold as it is warm; you can use these as a side-dish on their own or top greens with them to make a hearty salad.

Wash and dry whatever potatoes you plan to use. Slice into 1/2" or 3/4" coins.

Make a balsamic glaze with 1/4 C balsamic vinegar, 1/4 C water, 1/4 C organic raw sugar. Place all the ingredients into a saucepan and, over medium heat, cook till the sugar melts and a syrup begins to form.

Using a flat baking dish with a rim, line the pan with foil. Spread the coins out on the sheet, sprinkle them with freshly ground pepper and sea salt. Drizzle them with the syrup, first, and olive oil.

Roast in a 375 degreen oven for 45 minutes. Every 10 minutes or so, move the potatoes around so they don't stick to the pan. Serve hot or let cool and use later. You'll see these tomorrow on my bruch menu.



  1. I'm pretty much a sucker for anything glazed with balsamic...ESPECIALLY potatoes. These sound wonderful! Happy 2012, Camilla =)

  2. Oh my goodness ... those look DIVINE! I'm totally "pinning" these!

  3. This sounds so good! I've never had purple potatoes before - do they taste different?

  4. @Jessica, they don't really taste any different, but their texture is more crisp. More like a new potato than a russett.

  5. They sound delicious, and the tri-colored potatoes are beautiful to look at too!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce
