Potatoes!

This is the first week for potatoes and there are five different varieties we grew this year.  Purple Sun, Satina, Adirondack Red, Strawberry Paw, and German Butterball.  Potatoes aren’t just a delicious source of carbs; they contain Vitamin C, potassium, Vitamin B6, and some fiber and magnesium if eaten with the skins!  They also contain different antioxidants depending on the color of their skin.  Although not a common cooking method for potatoes, steaming may be one of the healthier ways to cook a potato because it helps retain more nutrients, while boiling and baking can cause more nutrient losses.
