After last week's delicious potatoes, I was thrilled to find more in this week's share. This week it's a potato I wasn't familiar with: Adirondack red potatoes. The info sheet we received described them as pink inside. Pink! Inside!
You all know I love potatoes, but I made myself hold off on these until a good bit of the rest of the share was eaten. Gerry and I talked about what to do with them and decided to go for basic baked potatoes. I didn't want to do anything to alter the color.
The three we have left are on the menu for tonight, although I'm not sure how we're going to cook them. Any suggestions?
Wow! I was surprised by just how pink they were inside! Ger said he was surprised that a red potato baked so well, but later I found out that these are classified as all purpose potatoes and baking is one of the things they do well. We both loved the results. They had wonderful texture and flavor, and the skin is very, very thin. Mmm.
