The gold potato's moist, silky-smooth, pale yellow flesh makes the best mashed potatoes we've ever eaten. Gold potatoes have a rich, buttery taste and smooth texture. Use whenever a recipe calls for a fine-grained potato with medium starchiness. Try gold potatoes simply boiled or tossed into potato salad.
The Black Dirt Region, spanning southern Orange County, New York and northern Sussex County, New Jersey, is home to family-owned farms situated on thousands of acres of deep, richly organic soil — the result of ancient glaciers melting, river overflow and plant decay. The lush valley is best known for its production of the prized "black-dirt onion," as well as other root vegetables.
