The best way to make glazed candy potatoes
The 1st step
I start this recipe by roasting the candy potatoes in just a little oil and salt. For the tastiest candy potatoes it is very important roast them for a minimum of 45 minutes (relying on the dimensions they’re minimize) to get some caramelizing of sugars and crispiness on the perimeters. As soon as they’re golden, aromatic, and fork tender the potatoes are accomplished.
Whereas the candy potatoes bake make the glaze. Sauté garlic and ginger in sesame oil earlier than including the liquid components. Stir within the cornstarch and water to thicken and create a sticky glaze for the potatoes.
Toss the roasted candy potatoes within the chili lime glaze. Garnish with sesame seeds and inexperienced onions. Serve scorching!
Suggestions for the right candy potatoes
- Partially peel the potatoes as a substitute of eradicating the entire pores and skin. The pores and skin is the place most of the vitamins are. Simply give the candy potatoes a great scrubbing earlier than you slice them.
- Prep and measure your glaze components earlier than you start the sauce. You wish to keep away from burning the garlic and evaporating the liquids earlier than the glaze is full. I estimate it’s going to solely take you 5 minutes to make, so be prepped and prepared.
- Use freshly squeezed lime juice. Retailer-bought lime juice pales as compared. If squeezing citrus isn’t your factor, get your self a citrus squeeze or citrus reamer.
- Roast the candy potatoes till they’re tender with golden brown edges. Bonus factors when you’ve got some sugars escaping the perimeters of your candy potato slices. Extra taste!
- For this recipe particularly––however actually this is applicable to most––roasting is best than boiling. While you roast the candy potatoes you deliver out extra pure sweetness, nuttiness, and earthy goodness. There are occasions when it’s useful to parboil candy potatoes (like for candied yams, aka candied candy potatoes), however this isn’t one in all them.
- This recipe is very easy to make you possibly can preserve it coated with foil and heat within the oven at 250° till you’re able to serve it. Any leftovers could be reheated within the microwave, on the range over medium warmth, or within the toaster oven.
- In the event you plan on serving the candy potatoes in one thing like a platter or casserole dish you can also make the marinade in a small saucepan. I made mine in a forged iron skillet as a result of I needed to serve the potatoes in there as nicely.
- Japanese or Caribbean candy potatoes work nicely too. They’re starchier and even sweeter. I barely desire the orange candy potatoes as a result of they’re softer and creamier.
- Use this scrumptious glaze on any roasted root greens.
The best way to retailer glazed candy potatoes
Retailer leftovers within the fridge for as much as 5 days. In the event you’d wish to freeze this dish, freeze the roasted candy potatoes and chili lime glaze individually. As soon as the components thaw, toss them to coat in a skillet.
