Featured Potato of the Week: Fingerlings
DENVER, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Small, slender “finger-sized” potatoes, fingerling potatoes range from two-to-four inches in length. They come in a wide range of skin and flesh colors – red, orange, purple, yellow and white – and most possess a firm, waxy texture. Pan-frying fingerlings, as seen in the US Potato Board’s recipe for Pan Fried Fingerling Potatoes with Wild Mushroom Sauce, enhances their robust flavor and showcases their wonderful nutty or buttery tastes.

Remember, a single, skin-on medium-sized potato (5.3 ounces) has just 110 calories, more potassium than a banana, and almost half your daily value of vitamin C (45 percent), with zero fat, sodium or cholesterol, so you can enjoy potatoes every night of the week.
