Boiled Potatoes Recipe Browned in Sugar

2 pounds white potatoes
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sugar

Select new potatoes, preferably small in size. If large, they should be cut in even pieces. Peel and boil.

Brown the butter over low heat in a preheated saucepan. Add the sugar. When the mixture becomes frothy, add the potatoes. Turn, repeatedly, until the potatoes become well-coated and light brown.
