Okay to roast red potatoes?

janbrady | Dec 25, 2006 01:27 AM

This may be a silly question, but I'm new to making things like roasts and side dishes (I'm more of a baker, but trying to branch out this Christmas). I have some red potatoes on hand (are these the same as "new" potatoes? Some are small, the size I associate with "new," but others are slightly larger--2-3 inches in diameter). Are these okay for roasting? (I plan to parboil and then roast.) Or are they best just boiled? (These are left over from a potato salad I made by boiling the taters.)

Thanks in advance!
