Potatoes: Red Norlands are the most popular red-skinned potato ~ excellent boiled, mashed, & smashed. Russets are the standard baking potato- high in starch and low in moisture, so they bake well and yield light, fluffy mashed potatoes. They don’t hold their shape after cooking, so don’t use them to make potato salads or scalloped potatoes. We also have Russian fingerlings ~ buff brown skin / white flesh.
SALE! Organic Olive Oil! 5% off any bottle of olive oil. Bulk blended organic oil for sale for $30 in your quart jar.
