I was up in Whistler last weekend and made the trip up to Pemberton on Sunday when it was raining up on the mountain. We had lunch at a delightful and delicious place called the Pony Cafe. It was there that I learned about Pemberton potatoes. Apparently Pemberton is one of the world's major sources for seed potatoes, and apparently their potatoes are legendary. Well I could not resist, and brought a bag of German Butter potatoes home from Pemberton. These are hands down the best potatoes I've ever eaten, and why I didn't risk bringing more home, I just don't know.
Has anyone ever seen German Butter potatoes in Seattle? For being something as mundane as a potato, well, just, wow.
