Warm nights in early June really call for something like a Pimm’s Cup.
It’s a nice thing to sip while you’re prepping tiny matchstick potatoes, and getting a fire ready to grill some burgers made from great local beef.
This night, our beef came from Aquidneck Farm.
Oh, and about those matchstick potatoes?
Be VERY sure you dry them well. Even better than you think you have. (Several rounds of towel drying, after much time in a colander draining. Rub rub rub, dry dry dry.) A pass with a blow-dryer might even be in order. Because they can. not. be. too. dry. before they go into a high-sided pot of very hot oil filled not even 1/3 of the way up. Trust me. I damn near burned the house down.
That said, these might have been worth the new patch of grey hair I sprouted overnight.
