March was all about the potato. They’re nutritious, packed with flavour and come in a rainbow of colours like red, orange, gold, white and deep blue.
The nugget potato is unique to British Columbia and is the first potato you will see at the Farmer’s Market. Red skinned potatoes are found in July and August and are great for our summer potato salad. Yellow-fleshed Yukon Gold potatoes are a favourite as you can roast, bake, boil, mash and french-fry it! Russets are found in the fall are best for baked potatoes.
