Baby Red Potatoes are a good choice for Potato Salad because they stay firm when cooking.
Nobody likes a mushy Potato Salad.
I leave the skins on when making Baby Red Potatoes for a rustic and colorful look.
I know when I first started cooking as a young girl, I was taught to boil the Potatoes whole then cool them, then peel them, then cut them for Potato Salad.
Before every household had microwave ovens, every home probably had a Double Boiler pan set. A lot of youngsters today probably don’t even know what one is.
A Double Boiler is useful when melting chocolate or making delicate sauces. Prior to microwave ovens, using the Double Boiler prevented your chocolate or sauces from burning or sticking to the pan.
