Kennebec Potatoes
Item #: VGP112
Our Price: $1.99
Unit Size:  



The Kennebec is a big, hefty potato with a rich, earthy and nutty flavor. The flesh of the Kennebec potato is firm and moist, yet starchy, making it a versatile potato in the kitchen. Its thin. slightly rough skin is creamy white and tan and its flesh is soft ivory in color.


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.



Kennebec potatoes are available year round, with a peak season from summer into winter.

Salmon Rolls with Smoked Salmon Colcannon
This is not exactly a traditional Irish dish, but it's typical of the "new Irish" cooking - solidly Irish ingredients and preparations, updated to suit contemporary palates.
As you cut into crispy "rolls", the creamy, smoked salmon-flavored potato and cabbage mixture oozes out! Leftover mashed potatoes are perfect for this dish, but if you don't have any, it's good enough that you'll want to make them from scratch!

Roasted Chestnut Soup with Dumplings
Chestnut soup is a wonderful gourmet experience, hot and rich, and full of the nutty flavor of American chestnuts. This is another example of "fusion" cooking - here we've combined an Asian favorite, Won Tons, with a traditional U.S. soup, right out of colonial America.

Wild Ramp Soup
This soup is ideal for those rainy spring days when just going out to get the mail can make you shiver. When we first ran this recipe in our newsletter, not only did it receive favorable reviews from professional chefs, but it was also published in the Detroit News.

It makes an excellent lunch, especially when served with open face veggie sandwiches and a good red wine. Some folks like to add a dollop of sour cream on the top of each serving of soup. If you decide to try this, please make sure the sour cream is at room temperature.

Ramp and Potato Soup II
Another exciting variation on the Vichysoisse theme, but served warm.

Some ramps have a stronger flavor than others. The amount you use in this recipe is up to you, and depends on how much of an "edge" your ramps have and what your personal preference is. This recipe calls for three bunches of ramps. Think of the bunches that scallions come in at the supermarket when you gauge the amount of ramps you use in this recipe.
