Before getting down to the business of preparation, I decided to check out what the website had to offer in terms of "best practices", tips or recipes for their potatoes. The first thing I found was that there were actually nine different varieties of potato packages I could have received! (I found that pretty impressive.) Then I worked my way over to the recipe page. To be honest, this is what took me so long to prepare them, each night I would look at the recipes and, feeling that I had only one bag to play with, I couldn't decide which recipe I wanted to try. I decided to let my husband in on it and ask him which he would like to try, together we settled on the Crushed Potatoes With Basil recipe.
Working with the Potatoes
When I finally took them out of the bag I was immediately impressed by the beautiful colors and variety found within. And, yet, while there was variety in color there was a nice uniformity in the size of the potatoes. I was also impressed by what good shape the potatoes were in (I am in constant fear of the one bad potato ruining an entire bag by smell alone!).
|I LOVE the purple potatoes - how pretty both inside and out!|
The Final Verdict
The potatoes were, as the package had guaranteed before I even opened it: AMAZING! The recipe was simple enough to prepare with ingredients I had around the house. The package of potatoes was just enough to enjoy (and go for seconds!) for my husband and I. I am hoping to find Tasteful Selection in my Stop N Shop soon!
