Quarterly Mash-Up: Issue 5: Did You Know?
There are over 100 potato varieties sold in the U.S. that are categorized into seven potato types: russet, red, white, yellow, purple/blue, fingerling and petite. For grilling, yellow potatoes are usually recommended because open-fire cooking gives them a crispy skin that enhances the dense, buttery flesh, creating a slightly sweet caramelized flavor. Blue/purple potatoes also work well on the grill, thanks to their high moisture content. Be inspired and experiment with any potato type to achieve the flavor and texture you desire.
