Harvest of the Month Recipe for April

These roasted baby red bliss potatoes are a delicious, healthier alternative to french fries. When done perfectly, the cut halves turn golden brown and the skins shrivel slightly, creating a thin layer around a pillow-soft  interior. Delicious on their own, these potatoes are also a great start for potato salad.
