Best for boiling, baking and making french fries. Yukon Gold potatoes also stand up well to grilling, pan-frying and roasting.
Very absorbent, so they are great paired with butter and cream — think mashed potatoes. Just don’t try using Idaho russets for potato salads, gratins or any dish that requires the potatoes to hold their shape.
Use for boiling, steaming, roasting or in soups, but not for baking.
RED GARNET YAMS
When cooked, this sweet and slightly earthy flavored potato is moist, starchy and fluffy. Red garnet yams can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. Include them in pie fillings, soups, stir-fries and sauces.
