Spring is the season of rebirth. There are new buds on the trees, and new produce at the markets. We've waxed poetic about spring peas, asparagus, and our other green favorites. But now we're going to talk to you about new potatoes -- those delicate thin-skinned potatoes that pop up late spring and early summer.

New potatoes are not a type of potato. They're just potatoes that have been harvested early (think baby potatoes).
