Russet Potatoes

Russet potatoes are the most popular type of potato. Russets are ideal for light and fluffy mashed potatoes. They also fry up crisp and golden brown, and they are the potato of choice for baking. The delicate flavor and fluffy texture of baked russets go well with all kinds of toppings, from traditional sour cream and chives to spicy and bold Mediterranean or Latin flavors.Try cutting into planks or wedges to make hearty oven-roasted “fries.”
