Crushed Sour Cream Potatoes


All of the potatoes from your box

kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 cup heavy cream

3 large garlic cloves, crushed

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup finely chopped basil

1/3 cup coarsely chopped parsley or dill


Cook the potatoes in a  large pot of boiling, salted water until tender. Meanwhile, in a medium pot over medium heat, gently simmer the cream and garlic until the garlic is tender and the cream is reduced by a 1/3 (8-10 minutes). Season with salt and lots of pepper. Add the butter and swirl to melt. Using your hands or a small dish or bowl, crush the potatoes and place in a large bowl. Pour the cream mixture over the potatoes, and season with salt and more pepper. Toss to coat, encouraging the potatoes to break down slightly. Stir in the sour cream, and half of the herbs. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with the remaining herbs.
