How to Make Chantelle’s Pommes Vapeur
Take a potato steamer made of copper and fill in water to just reach below the ridge. Put the perforated insert plate inside the pan so it lies over water.
Over medium heat, bring the water to a boil. Arrange the potatoes to cover the insert plate, cover up, and set to steam until the potatoes are soft when a knife or skewer is inserted. This is will take 20 to 25 minutes.
With forceps, relocate the potatoes to a heated serving bowl.
Include butter and herbs; fling lightly to mix. Flavor with salt and dish up immediately.
