Spring and early summer is the best time to play with new potatoes, which are simply young potatoes of any variety taken from the ground early in the season.
New potatoes haven't had time to mature, so their sugars haven't yet converted to starch. These stable sugar molecules help new potatoes keep their firm shape while cooking, making them toothsome additions to potato salad (seen in image above), kabobs, simmers, grills and raclette. Enjoy our new potato recipe collection below!
