Season: These potatoes will be coming from Canada this month.
Flavor: subtly sweet; rich; buttery; medium-sugar content the texture is slightly waxy, velvety, moist with a light tan to golden skin; yellow to golden flesh appearance.
Storage: Store potatoes in a cool, dark place with low humidity (a basement is ideal). Kept dry and in a dark place, most potatoes will keep for at least a month and up to three months (or more!). We don’t recommend storing them in the refrigerator and do not store with onions! There’s a chemical reaction that happens when potatoes and onions are in close proximity that will cause your potatoes to sprout and your onions to rot.
How to use: Potatoes are extremely versatile. Yellow “A” Potatoes are a great all-purpose potato. Their texture is right between starchy and waxy so you can use them in any recipe. They are great mashed, roasted, in salads, in soups or “smashed”.
Nutrition: A 5 ounces serving and has just 100 calories (not including the fats or oils you might add). Some of its nutritional offerings are highly superior. A single potato of this size offers 21% of the US Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of potassium. It’s also a great source of vitamin C, with about 45% of the US RDA. They also give people about 10% of the vitamin B6 they need for the day and have 3 to 4 grams of dietary fiber. They are lower in total carbohydrates than most white potatoes as well. Potatoes have gotten a bad rap in the last few decades for being high in carbs, but the truth is, the tubers are actually pretty good for you.
