Potatoes, Adirondack Red

Potatoes, Adirondack Red
(Potatoes, Adirondack Red) We first encountered these Adirondack red potatoes in a local farm store. They are good tasting and can be prepared in any way you desire, but we prefer baking them in pre-cleaned skins to show off their beautiful color (since the skins are thin, we need to be careful to scrub them gently so as not to remove the skin). Wikipedia says that the Adirondack red potato is a hybrid potato variety with red flesh and skin, bred by Cornell University potato breeders Robert Plaisted, Ken Paddock and Walter De Jong and released in 2004. Adirondack Red potato tubers are unusual because both the skin and the flesh are colored and have high levels of anti-oxidants. They are described as "Early-to mid-season, medium-to high-yielding variety. Dark green decumbent to spreading vines bear oblong to long, slightly flattened, purplish-red-skinned tubers with shallow eyes and pink to red flesh."

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
