Uncle Moses’ Potato Variety
Dozens of potato varieties are grown in Israel. Therefore, it is important to select the variety best suited for your recipe. Some potatoes will retain their shape after boiling, others are suited for baking and there are potatoes that will be easily mashed. There are varieties whose flavors are enhanced when oven roasted; some are suitable for salad (smooth and moist texture) while others enable a consistent and lump-free texture for mashed potatoes. Thus, it is important to purchase the right variety for its intended use, as presented below.
