Yukon Gold Potatoes

The Yukon Gold potato was created in the 1960s by Gary Johnston, scientist and agricultural icon in Canada.

He bred the first Yukon Gold variety at Ontario Agricultural College in 1966 from a white fleshed potato from North Dakota, called norgleam with a wild South American yellow-fleshed variety.

The flesh of a Yukon Gold potato is richly flavored and fairly firm and moist, with medium starch content.

Their medium starch content allows them to hold up to a variety of preparations, including boiling, baking, sauteing and frying.

The frying method, called sautéing, quickly cooks the potatoes at a temperature high enough to brown them.
