How to Cook Baby Potatoes

Time Saving Tips for Cooking Potatoes

Our potatoes are versatile and can be prepared any way you like to make a nutritious and convenient dish. There is no need to wash or peel our potatoes before cooking. Tasteful Selections® products are pre-washed, with most varieties being triple washed. Their skins are very thin and taste great, so use them in any potato recipe with the skins on. Cook times are approximate and may vary based on the bite-sizes.

*Nibbles® are the world’s smallest potatoes! Since these are uniquely tiny, you will want to reduce cook time by approximately 5 minutes when cooking Nibbles.
