Fingerling Potato

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Fingerling Potato, an unusual potato, is grown predominantly in the U.S. and in Mexico. Its flavor is slightly sweet but similar to regular potatoes. It can be prepared like other potatoes; mashed, baked or boiled. It is best enjoyed with mild seasonings to appreciate its subtle flavors. This potato is named for its unique finger-like appearance. It is a good source of fiber, potassium and Vitamin C. Recommended Storage: 45-50'F. Keep cool, dry and dark. Potatoes exposed to light or stored in extremes of temperature (cold or hot) can develop elevated levels of a naturally occuring alkaloid called solanin. Its presence can be detected by green coloration. Cutting away the green spots removes most of this substance which can be toxic.
