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.
A morgue is a morgue is a morgue. They can paint the walls with aggressively
cheerful primary colors and splashy bold graphics, but it's still a holding
place for the dead until they can be parted out to organ banks. Not that I
would have cared normally but my viewpoint was skewed. The relentless
pleasance of the room I sat in seemed only grotesque.
