Rosemary Potato Slices

Folks ask about what potato is good for this or that, well, it’s kind of more complicated than boiling types of baking types. In general, the Yukon Gold, Kennebec, Blue Peru, Superior and Katahdin are multipurpose potatoes. The Red Norland are best boiled.  Overall, you can’t go wrong with most of the potatoes we grow, so cook them as the mood strikes you and enjoy! 

(Gourmet, January 1990)

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 russet (baking) potatoes (about 1 1/4 pounds), scrubbed
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt plus additional if desired
  • 1/2 teaspoon crumbled dried rosemary

Into an 8-inch baking pan pour half the butter, making sure it covers the entire bottom, and in the pan layer the potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices, in separate rows, overlapping the slices. Sprinkle the potatoes with the salt, the rosemary, and pepper to taste, pour the remaining butter over them, and bake the potatoes in the middle of a preheated 425°F. oven, turning each row once with a long spatula, for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until they are crisp and golden. Sprinkle the potatoes with the additional salt.

About stillmansfarm

Stillman's Farm® is a family owned farm in Massachusetts. We currently operate at two locations: a greenhouse/retail business in Lunenburg, and the majority of vegetable production in New Braintree. Glenn Stillman started the business in Lunenburg over 20 years ago and now enjoys the promise of the next generation further expanding the very diverse enterprise. The farm also has several Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs established in Boston, Lunenburg, Jamaica Plain, Brookline, New Braintree and the Southborough/Framingham area. In addition, the Stillman's trucks have become a fixture at the Boston Area Farmer's Markets. Our Philosophy Most of Stillman's produce is grown without chemicals. For a few crops this simply is not feasible. For these particular crops, we participate in the State Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. This entails systematic scouting of fields, protection of beneficial insects, bio-controls, and well-timed applications of only the safest pesticides. With growing concern about genetically modified organisms (GMO), as a patron you can be confident that none of the produce we grow have been engineered, in fact, we often experiment with many heirloom varieties! Conscientiously Grown® The combination of no pesticides, good cultivation management, and IPM practices allows us to offer the widest possible selection of fruit and vegetable varieties and be a thriving sustainable farm. We have developed our own label, "conscientiously grown" to convey our commitment to the safety of our environment, family and customers. All of our hormone free, pasture raised meats carry a conscientiously grown label too!
