1. Using the parisian spoon, remove the potato beads, pushing it firmly into the spoon in the potato and turning the spoon to get the “ball” the most possible.
Then book in cold water.

Note: Apples nuts
We speak of “balls”, but they are never completely round, you just try to get closer.

3. Put the pommes noisettes in a sauté pan and cover with water 1cm over the potatoes.
Bring water to a simmer over high heat.
At this stage there may be a little foam on the surface. Preheat oven to 390°F (200°c).

Note:
Water can boil but not for a really long time. We are poaching potatoes but having them undergo a pre-cooking.

4. Drain the potatoes without let them cool.
Here you can pat dry with paper towel to remove some moisture, it is to avoid oil spills during the next phase.
