Resembling a sweet potato in shape, fingerling potatoes have thin skin and fine textured yellow, white, red, or purple flesh. Due to their thin skin, they do not need to be peeled before cooking. Fingerling potatoes add vibrant colors and pizzazz to traditional potato salads and other favorite potato dishes!
How to Select
All potato varieties should be clean, firm, smooth, dry and uniform in size.
How to Store
Do not wash for storage. Do not store with onions. Place in a paper bag, or in a plastic bag with some air holes. Store in a cool, dark place, or refrigerate. Can last up to 5 months.
How to Prepare
Scrub gently under water. Skin has many nutrients. If peeling, first remove any sprouts. Carve out any green spots. Steam, microwave, boil, bake, sauté, roast, or mash. For crisp French fries, soak sliced potatoes in chilled water for 1 hour before frying. Add to casseroles, soups, stews, or curry dishes.
