A welcome addition to the large variety of potatoes available from Melissa’s, Baby White Potatoes are simply young potatoes with less starch and more flavor. Baby White Potatoes (also known as White Rose or White Creamer) are part of the thin-skinned family of potatoes. They are round and have a crisp, waxy texture surrounded by a thin skin. Melissa’s Baby White Potatoes can be cooked in almost any way imaginable. Their light, subtle flavor and creamy texture makes them a favorite in potato salad. To preserve their nutrients, leave the skins on and simply scrub gently in water before using.
Baby White Potatoes from Melissa’s are hand-selected for excellent quality. Look for firm, well shaped and fairly smooth potatoes. Avoid potatoes that have wrinkles or any green discolorations (which is caused by overexposure to light, also known as "light burn" and can be easily removed by slicing off with a paring knife.) Also avoid signs of sprouting, wilting or decay. Store in a cool, well-ventilated area rather than refrigerate up to 2 weeks.
