You can boil them also and make a bunch of different things: gnocchi, croquettes, ravioli filling, etc. Look through your culinary textbooks and experiment with whatever they have in there.

Things you can do with larger potatoes: mashed, scalloped, au gratin, baked, twice baked, braised, fried...potato soup, any soup, potato salad...cook with any roasting or braising meat (pot roast)...eat raw with a dash of salt.

I am a mid-western girl, and have never met a potato I didn't like.

How about a baked potato soup? That's always a winner around here.

Or perhaps cube a ton of them, roast with a bit of oil on a cookie sheet, then top with grated cheese, chopped green onions, diced tomatoes, diced olives....put back into the oven, cook till cheese melts, then top with tiny dollops of sour cream, back into the oven till the sc is warm and serve. Super Super good.

Consider Lyonnaise potatoes.

A number of years ago we were given little taters, home grown, by a very good friend.

We tossed them into the veggie part of the fridge, and, yes, we forgot about them.

Cleaning out the fridge is not a high priority about here, too much else to do.

About six months later we found them, and decided to cook them up.

There was, as I remember, a little discussion about would they be any good, and I offered to be the test subject (we gotta get a cat, sorry, LOL).

They were so sweet and tasty it was unbelievable.

Have done that mistake a couple of times since, on purpose, and now that we have our old fridge in the cellar will probably do it again.

Thanks for bringing the subject up Luvs. I had forgotten about that.

Will be going to the farm stand in the morning and will put some away.

I can only suppose it is what our ancestors found in their root cellars in the spring.

But they are so good.

Happy Easter.
