Roasted Red Potatoes

These potatoes are, in a word, AMAZING. I know what you're thinking... It's roasted red potatoes, that's not a big deal. But these potatoes, my friends, were brined. So they're seasoned on the inside! Big deal!!! You must try these.

2 lbs small red potatoes
1/4 c kosher salt
1 T agave nectar
10 peppercorns
2 1/2 c hot water
6-8 ice cubes
2 T extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper

Pierce potatoes with a fork several times. In a large bowl, stir hot water together with salt, agave nectar and peppercorns until the salt is dissolved. Add ice cubes to chill water down. Add potatoes and let brine for 5-6 hours. Rinse potatoes. Toss potatoes with oil, salt and pepper. Roast in a 375 degree oven for 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes.
