“Desiree” originated in The Netherlands, and is another of the new potato varieties Valley Flora Farm (Langlois) is trying out this year. Desiree has a round shape, pink skin and pale yellow waxy flesh, and is idea for boiling, roasting, mashing, and gnocchi.
Store your potatoes in a cool, dry, dark place (your pantry works) preferably in a mesh or paper bag. (Note: too much light or moisture can cause your potatoes to get green spots or sprout.) These potatoes are NOT treated for storage, so plan to use them within a month or so. Grown using organic practices.
