red potatoes

Because of red potatoes flavor and texture, its best to boil or roast them. They absorb accompanying flavors well.

How to Select

Look for firm, well-shaped and fairly smooth potatoes. Avoid potatoes that have wrinkles.

How to Store

Do not wash for storage. Do not store with onions. Place in a paper bag, or in a plastic bag with some air holes. Store potatoes in a cool, dark, well-ventilated place, or refrigerate. Can last up to 5 months.

How to Prepare

Scrub gently under water. Skin has many nutrients. If peeling, first remove any sprouts. Carve out any green spots. Steam, microwave, boil, bake, saut, roast, or mash. Add to casseroles, soups, stews, and curry dishes.
