Potato, Yellow Yukon - Organic - 1 lb (approx. 2-3 large to medium size pcs)
Bred in Canada, Yukon Golds are a cross between a North American white potato and a wild South American yellow-fleshed one. Their golden flesh is richly flavored and fairly firm and moist, with medium starch content. A perfect compromise between dry, fluffy russet potatoes and moist, waxy varieties, Yukon Golds are incredibly versatile.
They pair well with cream, butter, garlic, bacon, cheese, fried and scrambled eggs, and herbs such as oregano, cilantro, sage, basil, and tarragon.
Use: Yukon potatoes are superb for mashing and in soups and chowders, and they’re great for roasting and sauteeing, too.
Storage: Yukon gold potatoes will keep up to two weeks when stored in a cool, dry, and dark location.
