Recipe Tips 

Round white potatoes are commonly referred to as boiling potatoes. This kind of potato contains less starch and more moisture than a baking potato such as russets. 

Potatoes will keep successfully for several weeks if stored in a cool, dark, humid (but not wet) place. Avoid light because it greens the skin giving potatoes a bitter flavor. Also, don’t keep potatoes in the refrigerator. Cold converts potato starch to sugar, sweetening them.
