Perhaps the simplest way to serve freshly dug potatoes is to toss them with oil and roast them until golden brown. They turn crisp on the outside and tender inside. Potatoes that are all the same size will be ready at the same time.
Set the oven at 400 degrees.
Prick the potatoes well all over. In a bowl, toss the potatoes with oil, salt, and pepper. Transfer them to a baking dish large enough to hold them in one layer.
Roast the potatoes for 1 hour, turning occasionally, or until they are tender when pierced with a fork.
Sprinkle the potatoes with the herbs and serve at once.
Many enraged psychiatrists are inciting a weary butcher. The butcher is
weary and tired because he has cut meat and steak and lamb for hours and
weeks. He does not desire to chant about anything with raving psychiatrists,
but he sings about his gingivectomist, he dreams about a single cosmologist,
he thinks about his dog. The dog is named Herbert.
