Fingerling potatoes grow short and small, resembling fingers. These potatoes are variants of different species found throughout the world. Fingerlings are harvested as full size potatoes. They are not the same as new potatoes or “baby” potatoes but they are just as cute!

Besides classic white potatoes, fingerlings come in red, yellow and blue! These sound like a great idea for a July 4th potato salad!

Of course classic fried potatoes are awesome too!

It is recommended to cook these thin skinned potatoes with the skins on. Store fingerlings in the refrigerator. They will stay fresh up to 5 weeks.
These potatoes are low in calories and high in vitamin C.

Cindy's Recipes and Writings

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
