It is new potato season!
Why are they called “new” potatoes? The potatoes are dug while the plants are still green. These potatoes are very tender and have a delicious mild flavor.
The early potatoes are harvested by hand to make sure that we don’t miss any of the baby potatoes and are careful with the tender skins.
It is super important to note that these new potatoes need to be store in the fridge in a bag or container because of the thin skins.
We enjoy them boiled, roasted, or on the grill. My son, Ben, eats them raw as he is picking them up in the field.
Stop by the markets this week and pick some up to try! Here is our summer market schedule.
See you soon!
