Syracuse Salt Potatoes

Food is an integral part of history, defining culture and sometimes playing a large role in the prosperity of certain regions, cities, or entire countries. Much of that history is taken for granted, and unique cuisine remains only locally known or its history is forgotten. But many dishes have connections to wider histories that illuminate the past and connect us to the people that came before us. Such is the history of the salt potatoes of Syracuse, New York.
