I love different traditional holiday foods and one that I found particularly fascinating this year was Danish Sugar Potatoes. When I first read about them, I didn't think I'd like them, but I found I really loved them after I ate them alongside an amazing Danish Roast Pork with very crispy skin, delicious Roast Duck and a delightfully sweet and sour Red Cabbage dish that were all served for Christmas Eve. Can you tell how much I loved this meal? And the big surprise was how much I enjoyed this dish. One taste and I was sold! These potatoes were so good and they were really easy to make. This recipe can certainly be doubled or triple for a group. I really think you should try this dish as you will be surprised by how much you like them too!
Danish Sugar Potatoes
15 small new potatoes
1/4 cup sugar
4 Tablespoons Salted Butter
2 Tablespoons Water
Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender (check with a sharp knife) for about 20 minutes. Remove and drain and allow to cool slightly and then peel them.
Put sugar in a large frying pan and cook, without stirring - just swirling until the sugar melts and gets caramelized and golden brown. Stir in the butter and water and add potatoes. Cook until the potatoes brown, which will take about 5 minutes.
