Russets are ideal for light and fluffy mashed potatoes. Because Russets are high in starch, they are best for baking, mashing, roasting and French fries.
Reds have less starch than Russets or whites, so they hold their shape well in soups and salads, and do well when boiled or roasted. Their thin yet vibrant red skin adds appealing color and texture to side dishes and salads.
Whites are a great all-purpose potato — enjoy them in soups, salads, boiled, baked, mashed, fried and roasted. Their delicate, thin skins add just the right amount of texture to a velvety mashed potato dish without the need for peeling. Grilling whites brings out a more full-bodied flavor.
The creamy texture and golden color of yellow potatoes mean you can use less or no butter for lighter, healthier dishes. The naturally smooth and buttery texture also lends itself well to lighter versions of baked, roasted or mashed potatoes.
Fingerling color and shape are a welcome visual addition to any dish. Pan-frying and roasting enhance their robust flavor and showcase their wonderful nutty or buttery tastes.
Their concentrated flavors and quicker cooking time makes petites a good choice for potato salads. Simply toss petites in olive oil, rosemary and salt and pepper to make colorful, delicious and fun roasted potatoes. Creamers save you prep time, because they can be prepared and served whole, without slicing or chopping.
These colorful potatoes are best when microwaved, steamed and baked. The purple color is preserved best by microwaving. Because of their mild yet distinctly nutty flavor, blue/purple potatoes naturally complement green salad flavors.
