We just had Idaho baked potatoes with dinner, first time in a long time. We usually have the yukon gold. It got me thinking about taters. What's your favorite?

View Postdepends. for baked potato, I like the Idaho. If I'm making roasted taters, I use red.

 

What he said.....baked has to be Russet/Idaho....roasted red or Yukon gold. Potato salad, again, red or Yukons. Mashed could go either way, or a mixture of both. Tis all about starch content.........

cwm27.gif ....Just this weekend, I pulled out some of the last few red and yellow potatoes I have stored in a burlap bag from my garden to make roasted garlic/rosemary potatoes. While they were still in fairly good shape, they had started to sprout a bit and the skins were a bit wrinkled.....and as I was cutting them up, one guess what I thought of?.....cwm27.gif

 

 

(And BTW, they came out VERY good...)

did you plant any other varieties? I grew taters for the first time last year. We did yukon gold, kennebec, and red new. They all did real well. I tell you what, a fresh dug potato is delicious! Again, the yukon golds were my favorite. We're going to do another batch this year.

 

Last year I decided to go with the old wives tale for a successful harvest. I planted on St Patties day(night) under the moon. And yes, my neighbors think I'm crazy smile.gif.

 

later,

steve

Maybe since after 1536, but that is a relatively short time, and until then, there WERE NO POTATOES in Europe...........wink.gif

been on a big sweet potatoe kick lately. throw in the nuker for 6-8 mins, cut in half, squezze out the flesh, add some olive oil and a touch of hot water if necessary, some fresh or dried spices of your choice stir, serve and eat.

 

very tasty drool.gif
