Yellow Flesh Potatoes

Baked, mashed, fried, whipped or roasted, especially good for potato pancakes.

Good-quality yellow flesh potatoes will be firm, smooth-skinned and cream to light brown in color. They should have few eyes, and those few eyes should be shallow.

Store yellow flesh potatoes in a cool (40-50°F), dry, well ventilated, and dark place to protect them from light exposure and to inhibit quick sprouts from growing. If your potatoes do begin to sprout or grow, cut off the sprouts. If you don't have good storage available, buy in smaller quantities and more often.

You may store small quantities of fresh yellow potatoes in your vegetable drawer in the refrigerator. Never freeze fresh, uncooked potatoes as they will decay when unthawed.
