In this recipe, garlic is minced with sea salt and fresh rosemary. It's great for Easter.
6 or 7 red-skinned potatoes, washed
3 cloves garlic, peeled
Leaves from 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, or 1 tablespoon dried
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
Coarsely ground black pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Cut the potatoes and into 1-inch chunks.
Mince the garlic with the rosemary and sea salt until the mixture is almost a paste. Set aside.
In a 14- by 9-inch baking dish, mix the olive oil and garlic paste. Add the potatoes and coat well with the mixture. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, basting frequently with a brush, until the potatoes are golden brown. Sprinkle with pepper and serve immediately.
