Vinegar in roasted potatoes?

The Dairy Queen | Nov 10, 2009 08:26 AM

So, I was preparing a foil packet of potatoes, garlic, onions and rosemary to roast. I mistook a bottle of white wine vinegar for olive oil and dumped a couple of splashes in . After realizing my error, I rinsed the vinegar off the potatoes, then added olive oil as I'd originally intended. Throughout the roasting, I could smell the vinegar, though only a trace was left.

In the end, these potatoes turned out fantastic. Maybe the best roasted potatoes I've ever done.

Is this just a coincidence (maybe we just had some really great potatoes) or is vinegar a good addition to roasted potatoes? If the latter, how much would one normally add? (I'm assuming there's a less wasteful approach than pour on, rinse off...)

Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts.
