Care for some potatoes that are so much more than boiled? America's Test Kitchen offers up this ingenious way to get more flavor out of steaming: but add butter and herbs to the water. Makes sense!
Braised Red Potatoes with Lemon and Chives
Serves 4 to 6
1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes, unpeeled, halved
2 cups water
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 garlic cloves, peeled
3 sprigs fresh thyme
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
1. Arrange potatoes in single layer, cut side down, in 12-inch nonstick skillet. Add water, butter, garlic, thyme, and salt and bring to simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer until potatoes are just tender, about 15 minutes.
2. Remove lid and use slotted spoon to transfer garlic to cutting board; discard thyme. Increase heat to medium-high and vigorously simmer, swirling pan occasionally, until water evaporates and butter starts to sizzle, 15 to 20 minutes. When cool enough to handle, mince garlic to paste. Transfer paste to bowl and stir in lemon juice and pepper.
3. Continue to cook potatoes, swirling pan frequently, until butter browns and cut sides of potatoes turn spotty brown, 4 to 6 minutes longer. Off heat, add garlic mixture and chives and toss to thoroughly coat. Serve immediately.

Aqeela Sherrills is a Watts native who grew up around street gangs. As an adult, he decided to team up with other community members to build a more peaceful, prosperous Watts.
A chaotic riot narrative may have plagued Watts for the last five decades, but these long-running organizations show the community’s deep and lasting legacy of political and cultural organizing.
