I think it’s a nice gesture to give the full-sized Russet rather than the fun size new potato.

With sour cream, chives and bacon bits, a russet potato is a meal all by itself.

Just gobs of butter, salt, and pepper are all I need.

They don't have enough flavour for me that way.

[-] ZoopZeZoop 8 points 5 months ago

Are you taking off the skin? The skin has lots of good flavor. I still like sour cream, cheddar cheese, and green onions, but S+P and butter are still great to me.

Y'all all putting more than just salt on your potatoes? (Feel free to judge me I also eat them raw, I'm from Idaho)

[-] spittingimage 3 points 5 months ago* (last edited 5 months ago)

Rosemary, sometimes. Other times, a mix of spices out of a jar.

What. 😟 My mother always told me you can die eating potatoes raw.

It could make your tummy upset, but it's unlikely to cause any issues at all unless the potato is turning green or starting to sprout. It'd taste pretty awful at that point, but I'm not sure I'd trust someone who eats raw potatoes to notice that...

No you can't die from it (save from maybe bacteria if you don't wash it correctly which isn't a potato specific problem that's just produce). The green part of potatoes can make you sick if you eat too much but that's more of a ratio thing and it is present in roughly the same levels cooked or raw.

Imo, the best way to eat them raw is to slice them relatively thin (not so thin as for them to be floppy), sprinkle a little salt on top. They have texture like a water chestnut. Eat as you slice or rinse the slices or else the starches leak and give them a weird mouth feel...

You should know why Idaho is famous for it's potatoes and fun hint, it wasn't because they better than any other just cheaper for a kinda shitty reason.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 5 months ago

Is it the prison slave labor or is it a whole new fun and exciting reason? Because Idaho spuds are a lot of prison slave labor.

[-] Madison420 1 points 5 months ago

Yep it's the unsavory prison labor.

I keep the skin on. I've heard that a lot of good nutrition is just under the skin.

[-] Kase 4 points 5 months ago

The same is true of humans

[-] [email protected] 3 points 5 months ago

Try a yellow tatter instead. Russets are a hearty base to add flavors to but aren't all that flavorful inandofthemselves.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 5 months ago

Or chop it up, douse it with a mix of cayenne, garlic, and salt, spray it with a bit of olive oil, and toss it in the air fryer

Or slice it thin and serve it with a thick cheese sauce for easy potatoes au gratin
