Potatoes, Red

Red potatoes are so named because of their red skins.  If the skin is peeled off, red potatoes look quite similar to standard white potatoes.  Select red potatoes that are firm and free of cuts, bruises, or any signs of mold.  When we are using red potatoes, we thoroughly wash them and leave the skins on to add color to the recipe we’re preparing.  In our opinion, since red potatoes are generally more expensive than white potatoes, it doesn’t pay to buy them if you’re going to peel them.  See the nutritional chart below.
