As any Irish person knows , if you don't have some kind of potato for dinner . Whether it 's boiled in their skins, smashed or home made chips (fries) then you hadn't had your dinner ...LOL... other names we call potatoes over here are spuds, tatties(that's a scotch word)and purities ..
I use here in Ireland Kerr pinks or Roasters ,but I believe that Yukon Gold is a great potato in the States.. This is especially for my friend Rose Mary , I hope you like and enjoy ... :)
