Pickled potato recipe?

When I was in Colombia SA a few years back I ate some pickled potatoes at a bar/restaurant. They had them sitting on the bar for appetizers while you were drinking or waiting for your table. Toothpicks to stab them and a sign in Spanish, DO NOT REUSE YOUR TOOTHPICK GET ANOTHER ONE! Translated by an English speaking Colombian sitting next to me.

I noticed that when they refilled the bowls they poured them out of what looked like a regular canning jar, so I'm thinking homemade.

They looked like small, about 1 inch, red and blue potatoes cut in quarters. They were kind of sweet/sour/salty, crispy but not raw. I could taste a little dill and garlic. Very tasty!

Anyone have a recipe? I've Googled with no luck.

I googled and found this article.
It includes a link to Potatoes in Vinigarette.
You could always omit the carrots and onions, but I think they'd add beautiful color and flavor.

This is NOT a canning recipe, but to be kept refrigerated.

Sounds good, I may have to try it!! I love most everything pickled.

When I first read the header, it sounded unappealing, but now that Deanna's posted that recipe, I have to admit it's tempting. Especially for a pickle hound like me.

Thanks for sharing and also for exposing me to a new concept in pickling. I imagine this would be very colorful and pretty with a mixture of heirloom potatoes.

I can't imagine the texture would be good after canning and who knows what the processing time would be.

This doesn't sound like it's really "pickled" as a preservation method, but marinated for flavor.

Big difference!

Another one of those "not everything can be canned" recipes.

Deanna, I made the recipe that you linked to. It is very good, but not the same thing I ate in Colombia.

I swung a deal with a friend that lives there this weekend. He wants some old computer parts that I have laying around, I am giving them to him, he was going to pay shipping.

I told him if he goes to that bar/restaurant and gets me the recipe I will send him the parts for free, no shipping costs. It is about a 20 mile trip for him, so he will spend more on gas than the shipping costs. But I think he will enjoy the challenge, they will probably not give up the recipe easily!

Ooohh...the plot thickens!
Be sure to let us know how this turns out.

And, of course, if you DO get the recipe, I'd love to see it.

:)
