jan/Feb 2007, pg. 142: Ykon Gold Potaotes Sauteed in Clarified Butter
(1) great potatoes, I can see why they were a favorite
(2) why simmer the potatoes prior to sauteing? Other than shortening the cooking time, what purpose does it serve?

Butter has a fairly low smoking point -- even clarified butter.
I would assume that the technique allows one to get a crisp exterior without worrying about whether the inside of the potato is done.
I know that French Fry recipes will specify two fry cycles.

I've found that when making hash browns I prefer to boil the potatoes before browning them. It removes some of the starch so they don't stick together & you can get them crisper. I probably would bother clarifying the butter. Joe really liked these.
