Featured Ingredients

Russet Potatoes

Russet potatoes are a type of potato that is characterized by its oblong shape and brownish-red skin.

They are one of the most popular varieties of potatoes in the United States, and they are often used for baking, frying, and mashed potatoes.

Russet potatoes have a relatively high starch content, which makes them ideal for baking and frying. They also have a rustic flavor that many people enjoy.
