Kennebec Potatoes: The Kennebec is a big, hefty potato with a rich, earthy and nutty flavor. While Kennebec potatoes are most widely utilized for frying (they make wonderful chips & french fries!), they are an outstanding all-purpose potato. They can be baked, mashed, scalloped and made into hash browns. Their firm texture when cooked makes them ideal for use in potato salads, stews and soups. Their pleasant, but mild flavor makes them a perfect companion to other hearty ingredients.
