It sounds like regular dish without anything special on it if we look as the name. However, it is such a popular dish in Central New York. It was created in Syracuse (known for their salt production). In 1800s, Irish salt miners would bring a bag of small, unpeeled potatoes to work and lunchtime. They would boil the potatoes in free-flowing saltwater. The potatoes would then create a form of crust on the skin due to the salt. Hence, they are more crunchy on the outside while on the inside is creamy.
