Russet Potatoes - Spray Free

Potatoes are from Wild Earth Farm. Russets are oblong in shape. These thick-skinned potatoes fall apart while cooking, and whip up fluffy and light. This makes them the ideal choice for mashing. Because they have a light, mealy texture, high-starch potatoes are the best baked potato. They can be kept in a pantry, basement or any cool, dry and dark place. 

Want to turn these potatoes into fries? This recipe uses the length of the russet potato to make the perfect garlicky fries.
