Potatoes, Yukon Gold

Potatoes, Yukon Gold
(Potatoes, Yukon Gold) Yukon gold potatoes were developed at the University of Guelph in Canada by crossing a North American white potato with a wild South American variety.  Most of the potatoes grown outside of North America are of the yellow flesh variety.  Select Yukon gold potatoes that are firm and free of blemishes and wounds.  Some people claim that Yukon gold potatoes are more flavorful than white potatoes, but we haven't noticed any more difference than would be found in potatoes grown in different locations and soil conditions; however, since the Yukon gold potato contains anthoxanthins, bio-flavenoids that impart the yellow color, there may be a slight taste difference.  We could not find any specific nutritional information for Yukon gold potatoes.

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!
