Frequently Asked Questions

What herbs go with potatoes?

You can use a variety of herbs such as thyme, rosemary, oregano, and parsley. Use either dried or fresh herbs!

What are Russett potatoes good for?

Russett potatoes are great for almost anything! Since these types of potatoes are so fluffy and tender, they are perfect for creamy mashed potatoes. Enjoy Russett potatoes either grilled, roasted, boiled, fried, baked or mashed!

Should I boil potatoes before roasting?

Boiling potatoes for a little before roasting is what is referred to as parboiling. We do recommend parboiling potatoes for a bit until they are fork-tender before roasting or baking them to ensure they are perfectly crispy on the outside and soft and buttery on the inside.

How long do potatoes last?

Baked, roasted, or sauteed potatoes can last up to 5 days in the fridge. Place in a sealed container before storing in the fridge.
