* Review: I'm sure potato peeling is becoming a lost art for many people. But as someone who tends to find the task loathsome, I can't help but be thrilled by the number of pre-washed, peeled and cut potato products now on the market. Fresh From the Start Potatoes are partially cooked, making them even more convenient. Following a recipe on the package, I used the Red Bliss Potatoes to make Herb Roasted Reds. The Hash Brown Potatoes were used to make tasty potato pancakes (also inspired by a package recipe). Both dishes were easy to prepare on short notice. And the flavor was as good and fresh as promised. The potatoes also tend to have a relatively long refrigerator shelf life.
