One Potato, Two Potato

This week's share included two kinds of potatoes-red norland and blue Adirondack. According to what I've read, red norlands are the most popular red-skin potato in the United States. They're probably the variety you see at the grocery store...except those are nowhere near as fresh as these!

The first article I opened about blue Adirondack potatoes said that people are often a little scared of them. I had to laugh, because although I had seen blue potato chips, seeing an entire blue potato really is a little weird at first.

Like the Adirondack reds, these were developed at Cornell in 2003. Apparently they aren't the first blue potato, but they're an improved blue potato. And you know what all that color means? Antioxidants!
