Tip for working with them

– Just like with sweet potatoes, make sure you wash, wash, wash and wash some more.

– Where possible, keep the skin on for the cooking process

– Oven-roast these baby potatoes instead of cooking them stove top or microwaving them.  I find that oven roasting them cooks them more evenly

– Store them in a cool, dry place and use them up within a month of purchasing them

Answering your questions

How long to roast baby potatoes?

Roasted Baby Potatoes should be cooked at 350° and roasted for about 20-25 minutes.  This is the ideal temperature when I cook them in the oven when laid out on a sheet pan
If I am cooking them in a container like this (affiliate link) individual covered casserole dish, I like to up the temperature and the cooking time.  For that, I set the temp at 400° and cook for 25 minutes at a minimum

Do I need to peel baby potatoes?

No, you don’t need to peel baby potatoes.  Oven roasted baby potatoes always have their skin left unpeeled.  If you boil baby potatoes, then, the skin needs to be peeled.
In fact, all 3 of the above roasted baby potato recipes have their skin on during the cooking process.  I highly recommend oven roasting baby potatoes and keeping the skin on because it adds so much texture to any recipe.

How do you store baby potatoes

Place baby potatoes in an open basket type of container and place it in a cool, dark area of the pantry. They should be good for a month
I am guilty of putting them in the refrigerator because I tend to buy too much. Since I am always worried about them going bad if I don’t use them in time, I place them in a vegetable bag and then put them in the vegetable section of the fridge
Not sure if this a good thing, but, it has worked very well for me.
