Purchasing

At the store, look for LaRette Potatoes with the fewest blemishes, that are firm and have no buds growing from the top.

Storage

LaRette Potatoes should be kept cool and dry and dark. In their raw un-peeled form, LaRette Potatoes will last 1-2 weeks at room temperature. They will last longer (months) in a cooler environment. 

If raw LaRette Potatoes are kept in abundant light, or stored in very cold or very hot places they can develop high levels of toxic Solanin, a naturally occurring alkaloid. If the stored LaRette Potatoes have areas of green discoloration, that is from SoIanin. The solanin can usually be removed by simply cutting out the green toxic areas.

If you have peeled your LaRette Potatoes, they should be stored in water in the refrigerator where they can be held for up to 3 to 5 days.

Culinary Uses

La Rette Potatoes are best suited to Roasting or Boiling.
