New Potatoes are also called baby or creamer potatoes. The term refers to any potato that is harvested young, before their sugars are fully converted to starch. (Translation, these spuds are better for you). Generally, the smaller they are, the better the taste. They’re sweeter and waxier than mature potatoes, with very thin skins that don’t need to be peeled. [Even better....right?] Since they’re firm and flavorful, they’re ideal for potato salads and roasting whole. They go soft quickly and should be eaten within three days.
