5 Salty Potatoes on a tray with a Chive dip in bowl

Salty Potatoes

These Salty Potatoes are similar to how I make Jacket Potatoes. The Salt on the outside forms a crust and drawn the moisture out of the Potato Skin making for a crispy skin. The Potato remains deliciously soft on the inside. I serve these with a Creme Fraiche and Chive dip which pairs with them perfectly.
