Directions:
Directions:
Scrape skin from new potatoes, (the small one are best for this recipe) if they are larger than a golf ball, cut in half. Put scraped potatoes in a kettle, cover with water and boil for about 10 to 15 minutes. Drain.
Put enough butter in bottom of a skillet, to make about 1/2 inch, when melted. After drain well, pour potatoes in skillet, being carefully not to splash hot butter. Finish cooking potatoes, turning so as to brown all potatoes in the butter.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was most always my birthday dish when I was going up. Usually we go out to potato patch about that time of the year (end of may) and dig (gravel) around the plant and pull out enough to make a batch. You was alway careful not to disturb the plant and would put the dirt back around it so the smaller potatoes on the vine would keep growing. I alway looked forward to this dish and still make it, but I now buy the potatoes form the store, so they are are usually larger than I would prefer.
