Small Potatoes

Many thanks to Cyn for this great idea! We have had many weeks of unusually dry weather this season (after a very wet spring!) The potatoes have produced satisfactorily, but there are more small potatoes than usual.

If you look at the picture, you will see some of the very small ones and then some that are a bit larger that I cut into pieces. In each jar I added 1/2 teaspoon unrefined sea salt and 1/2 of a peeled garlic clove. As Cyn said, these will be a nice addition to the pantry and will save those small potatoes from being wasted!

I processed the quart jars for 40 minutes in a pressure canner. Very easy and quick to do. Please go to her blog for more of an explanation. If you don't have experience canning, and want to do this, please consult an up-to-date book of instructions. Here is a good one:


  1. I loved my canned potatoes and after I learned to rinse them before using them I love them even more.

  2. Thank you for the tip! I've never canned them before.
