There are almost as many potato varieties as there are potatoes recipes. Potatoes fall into three basic categories to include starchy, waxy, and all-purpose. Starchy potatoes are the variety that is great for both baking and frying potatoes recipes. Because of their starch content, they don't hold together very well when they are cooked. Starchy potatoes when cooked are fluffy and absorbent, perfect for baked potatoes with butter or the oil in a deep fryer. Starchy potatoes are good mashed, but you also must be careful not to overwork these potatoes, or else they will become a gluey mess. Waxy potatoes are the variety that has a smoother, more waxy texture, so this potato variety holds their shape while cooking. Waxy potatoes work well in potatoes recipes to include stews, soups, potato salad and scalloped potatoes recipes where you would need to boil, slice, or to roast the potatoes. All-purpose potatoes are the variety that has less starch than that of starchy potatoes, but not so much starch that they will all apart when cooked. All-purpose potatoes will work for most potatoes recipes. When it comes to the potato varieties that you use you want to avoid potatoes that have a green-tint to the potato skin. Potatoes with green skins have been exposed to too much light, and they have developed the toxin solanine which can cause conditions to include cramping, headaches, and fever. Such a potato will also have a bitter flavor.
