usually made with new white potatoes. Golf ball sized and smaller. They were made famous by the Hinerwadel family at their family owned "grove," where they put on corporate clam bakes in North Syracuse, NY. While the tradition of salt potatoes started in the salt houses in Liverpool, NY by Irish immigrants, Hinerwadel's made them a marketable food and a CNY tradition. http://www.hinerwadelsinc.com/
I've been eating these things at picnics, clam bakes and bbq's my whole life. Now that Wegman's is in the DC area, I can buy Wegman's brand almost year round, and Hinerwadel's in the summer. A little bit of home, here in DC.
