What are "new" potatoes?
What type of potato is best for mashed potatoes. Someone told me "new" Potatoes....?
Hi, new potatoes are potatoes that have been harvested before the potatoes reach "maturity". New potatoes are perfect for boiling and roasting.
The facts is that in many places they are hard to find. New potatoes are often called "baby potatoes" as well.
You can buy baby Yukon gold potatoes or as an alternative you could get baby Russet in the grocery store.
The baby Yukon gold are really great to cook mashed potatoes because of their small size and ideal overall texture. They are also very tasty too.
