Another option is to preheat the oven and a baking sheet to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and combine 6 cloves unpeeled garlic, 2 sprigs sage, 2 sprigs rosemary and 3 sprigs thyme in a bowl with 2 pints fingerling potatoes. Drizzle 3 tablespoons of olive oil over the potatoes, and toss to coat the potatoes and herbs in the oil.

Place the potatoes on the heated cooking sheet, reduce the heat to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and cook for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked through and crispy.

Alternately, boil 2 pounds fingerling potatoes in 2 quarts water with 1 1/4 pounds rock salt for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Remove the potatoes from the water, and allow them to cool for five to seven minutes before serving with butter or other toppings.
