purple potatoes

Veggie Type: Root

Season: Summer, but potatoes store well and taste great in the winter

Peak months: Peak harvest months are July-September

Uses: Potatoes are extremely versatile. They can be boiled, baked, roasted, grilled or fried, and they complement a variety of spices and flavors. Potatoes fall into three basic categories:  waxy (thin-skinned), starchy or all-purpose. Waxy and all-purpose hold up better when roasted or in potato salad while starchy potatoes are best for baking or mashing. Starchy potatoes will release a milky, starchy liquid when cut.
