  • Ingredients for Syracuse Salt Potatoes:
  • 4 pounds small potatoes, such as baby Yukon gold (I used only the 1-pound bag of tiny potatoes)
  • 2-1/4 cups kosher salt (I reduced this by a fourth)
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (I reduced this by a fourth)
  • Ingredients for Jim Beam "Smashed" Potatoes:
  • 1 pound of tiny potatoes, boiled for 5 to 6 minutes, drained
  • 1 diced red onion
  • 1 diced green pepper
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup Jim Beam
  • 1 tablespoons Worcestershire
  • 1 tablespoons Wesson oil
  • 1 garlic cloves,minced
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Ingredients for Ultimate Party Meatballs:
  • 1 (14-ounce) can Ocean Spray Jellied Cranberry Sauce
  • 1 (12-ounce) bottle Heinz Chili Sauce
  • 1 (6-ounce) jar of red currant jelly
  • 1 (2-pound) bag frozen, pre-cooked, cocktail-size meatballs


  • Directions for Syracuse Salt Potatoes:
  • 1. Put the potatoes, 8 cups of water and the salt in a large pan. Cover and bring to a biol over high heat, then reduce the heat t medium and simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 30 minutes. (Mine only took 5 minutes because the potatoes were itty bitty).
  • 2. Drain the potatoes in a colander and shake to remove excess water. Let the skins dry in the colander so that some of salt crystallizes.
  • 3 Meanwhile, put the butter in a microwaveable-safe bowl and microwave until melted. Serve the potatoes hot with the butter for dipping.
  • Directions for Jim Beam "Smashed" Potatoes:
  • 1. In a nonstick skillet, melt 3 tablespoon butter. Add the cooked potatoes and smash gently with a fork (you want to smash enough to break the skin, not have mashed potatoes).
  • 2. Add the onions and peppers. Fry on medium heat until the onions and peppers are tender.
  • 3. Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl and add to hot skillet. Toss gently to coat the potatoes. Let the sauce cook down just a little.
  • Directions for Ultimate Party Meatballs:
  • 1. Combine sauces and jelly in a large saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring until smooth. Add
  • meatballs. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until meatballs are heated through, stirring occasionally.
