How to use Potatoes in your Favorite Irish Recipes
Potatoes are a key ingredient in many Irish recipes. - especially Irish Stew. However, the key to a good potato dish lies in using the right potato variety. Here are 4 of the most popular potatoes and how to use them.
- Russet Potatoes. Russet potatoes have a high starch content, making the inside incredibly fluffy when cooked. This makes for an excellent mashed potato dish – the perfect side to any Irish recipe. They’re also a great option for french fries, turning them crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside.
- New Potatoes. All potato varieties that are harvested young are called “new potatoes”. New potatoes have a lower starch content and hold well when boiled or roasted. This, together with their smaller size, makes them the perfect potato for an Irish stew.
- Yukon Gold Potatoes. Yukon Gold potatoes have smooth, waxy skin and can be used in virtually any potato dish. This all-rounder potato has creamy flesh and a slightly buttery flavor.
- Fingerling Potatoes. As the name suggests, fingering potatoes resemble fingers, being longer and smaller than other potato varieties. They are great for boiling and roasting.
