A question about potatoes

greedygirl | Jan 17, 2009 11:52 PM

So, it turns out that potato varieties are completely different in the UK than America. Not a single one in common as far as I can make out. Who knew?

Anyway, I'm plannig to make a Zuni recipe for dinner which calls for yellow-fleshed potatoes, "preferably Yellow Finnish, Bintje or German Butterballs". Does this mean I need a waxy, salad potato? I have Charlottes (waxy) and King Edwards (floury) in my pantry.....

And while I'm about it, what kind of potatoes are Yukon Gold?

Thanks.
