Salt-Crusted Potatoes (Papas Arrugadas)
It's best to use whole small, lower-starch potatoes, such as fingerlings or Yukon Golds that are 1 to 1½ inches in diameter. Larger potatoes that have been cut into chunks won't work. Serve the potatoes with the garlicky, lightly spicy mojo picón and the herbal and cooling mojo verde.
pounds fingerling or small Yukon Gold potatoes (see note)
cups kosher salt
01In a large Dutch oven over high, bring 2 quarts of water to a boil. Add the potatoes, salt and cumin, then cook, stirring occasionally to dissolve the salt and adjusting the heat as needed to maintain a rapid simmer (not a boil), until a fork inserted into the largest potato easily slides in and out, 25 to 30 minutes.
