How To Get The Most Nutrition Out Of An Idaho® Potato

Q:

How do I get the most nutrition out of Idaho® Potatoes?

A:

To preserve the Idaho® Potato's abundant nutrients, cook with the skins on whenever possible. And steam, rather than boil potatoes.

Save the cooking water after steaming potatoes, as some of the potatoes' nutrients will have leaked into it. Use it to make gravies or bread, or to moisten mashed potatoes.
