Overnight Crock Pot Potatoes

This year at Arisia I attempted something new. Because one of our eaters is nightshade allergic, we can’t put potatoes in the beef stew. But it’s not a real Jewish shabbat lunch without slow cooked potatoes. So I tried cooking potatoes in one of our crock pots overnight. I started with this recipe, and fudged with it a bit. Here’s my version.

  1. Cut a bunch of baby potatoes into wedges. The amount will depend on the size of your crock pot and how many people you’re trying to feed. Dump these into the crockpot.
  2. Pour in a few tablespoons of olive oil. Don’t waste your fancy peppery extra virgin oil on this one.
  3. Take whatever fresh herbs you have in the house (I used rosemary, sage and thyme) and strip and chop the leaves and sprinkle them over the potatoes.
  4. ETA: Peel the bulk of a head of garlic. Throw in the cloves whole.
  5. Add salt to the pot. At Arisia we used rosemary salt, but any salt will do.
  6. Set your crockpot to low and cook overnight.
  7. Enjoy with friends.
