Potatoes

Red PotatoesThe first snow free days in early April are when we begin planting these Red Norland potatoes. With an early planting date and a warm growing season, it's our goal to have these 'Baby Reds' ready for you by the 10th day of July. A light, sandy loam soil close to the Crow River is the only location on our farm that has the ability to produce 'taters.' Of course, they are hand-harvested, washed, cooled to preserve them until they arrive at our markets the next day.

 

Prep and Storage

  • Refrigerate new potatoes if not used within 1-2 days
  • Wash gently as the skins of new potatoes is very thin

 

How to Use

  • Prior to skewering for kabobs, steam new potatoes for 10-15 min and let cool to shorten cooking time on the grill
  • Roast whole new potatoes in the oven with butter, garlic, and rosemary
  • Most of the nutrients are in or near the skin of the potato, peeling is not necessary
