About this item

- Excellent for roasting, grilling, mashing and salads
Red potatoes have a thin, vibrant red skin that adds color and texture to side dishes and salads. They are frequently used to make tender yet firm potato salad or add flavor to soups and stews, as well as being served baked or mashed.
Storing Red Potatoes: The best way to store red potatoes is to start by cleaning them -- brush off loose soil or wash under cool water. Potatoes must be dry before placing them in a well ventilated area with a temperature of 42-50 degrees. They should be stored in an open container, and are best stored when they can be spread out. Under the correct conditions, red potatoes can last up to several months.
