Potatoes, Red Thumb Fingerling

Potatoes, Red Thumb Fingerling
(Potatoes, Red Thumb Fingerling) Red Thumb fingerling potatoes are small in size, tubular, and oblong in shape, and they average about 6-7 centimeters (2-1/2 inches) in length. The semi-smooth skin is ruby red with a few shallow eyes, brown russeting, and some dark brown spots dispersed across the surface. The potato flesh is marbled with pink and creamy white and is waxy and firm. When cooked  with removing the skin, Red Thumb fingerling potatoes have a uniform shape and are creamy with an earthy, buttery flavor. Red potatoes are believed to have originated in Peru, and the Red Thumb fingerling is a modern variety that is said to resemble some of these original red potato cultivars. These small potatoes contain iron, vitamin C, zinc, copper, potassium, and fiber. We found them at a vegfest and they were grown by Braids 'n' Bulbs in Middleburgh, NY.

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!
