Having deliveries every two weeks means that our fall/winter shares are characterized by their abundance.
Our first haul is no exception.
Five pounds of delicious, organic potatoes, coming right up!
We will likely offer a choice of red or german butter potatoes.
While you can be flexible with potato uses, there are certainly culinary suggestions for both.
Sieglinde, which is the variety name for our german butter potatoes, are oblong, slightly-flattened, smooth tubers covered with clear yellow skin.
Known to store well, these potatoes have an amazing taste and texture, which makes them good for boiling and are particularly good in salads.
Chieftain is a red-skinned, white-fleshed oval to oblong heritage potato. It also boasts good storability, and like its german counterpart, is good boiled, due to its creamy texture.
It is also fantastic for making baked potatoes.
Finally, although these are the suggestions for how to use these potatoes, I've just used these, willy nilly, to suit my culinary needs and I haven't been disappointed yet!
