Yukon Gold Potato Cooking Tips and Hints. The texture of Yukon Gold potatoes, when used in potatoes recipes and easy dinner ideas, is somewhere between that of Idaho potatoes and red potatoes. Yukon Gold potatoes have a slightly lower starch content than Idaho or russet potatoes, which give them a combination of both mealy and waxy textures. This makes Yukon Gold potatoes an all-purpose potato that is good for just about any cooking potatoes recipe, so you can feel free to experiment using Yukon Golds in any family-friendly meal idea or recipe that calls for traditional white potatoes. Some potatoes will turn a grayish color under certain cooking conditions. Yukon Gold potatoes, however, resist graying and in fact, will often turn an even brighter color when they are cooked in high PH water. You want to be aware that the addition of acid to the cooking water will cause the Yukon gold potato flesh to pale a bit, just as adding acid to white potatoes while cooking will help to brighten the white color of the potato. Yukon Gold potatoes are great for people who love potatoes for their easy dinner ideas but want or need to avoid using butter or margarine. Yukon Gold potatoes have a natural buttery flavor all of their own. You'll also find that Yukon Gold potatoes require less seasoning for your family friendly meal ideas than white potatoes.
Yukon Gold Potato Selection. Yukon Gold flesh potatoes are generally available from July through April. You want to select potatoes for your easy dinner ideas that feel firm to the touch, which has no bruised or bald spots, sprouts, cuts, or green areas. When one potato has a soft spot or a damaged area, this will hasten the deterioration of the rest. Yukon Gold Potato Storage. Since Yukon Golds have a slightly higher sugar content, they do not store as well as russets. Yukon Golds need a cold environment.
Depending on how long the Yukon Gold potatoes have been in storage before you purchase them, some people say you can remove the potatoes from your fridge and let the potatoes sit in a cool dark place to let any sugar that has formed revert back to starch. Potatoes that have a higher sugar content will brown more quickly during cooking. Don't Eat Green Potatoes. Potatoes can turn green, look fine and still be firm. The green areas on potatoes are a result of exposure to light, which results in bitterness. The green on potatoes indicates the presence of solanine, which can cause some intestinal discomfort when used for your easy dinner ideas. When the level of solanine exceeds 0.02 percent, the potatoes can actually become toxic. You can cut off the small green areas and use them for your family-friendly meal ideas, but if the potato has more than half green, you want to throw them away. Avoid those potatoes with green spots when selecting any type of potato. You will find this potatoes recipe at the Grandmothers Kitchen site.
