German Butterball Potato

An heirloom variety potato. Mostly round to oblong with medium dry flesh. Skin so thin - it needn't be peeled. Makes wunderbar Kartoffelsalat!

Storage: Potatoes should be stored in a cool, dark place. Organic potatoes have not been treated with any sprout retardants.

Preparation: Boil in skins, cool, and use in potato salad or glaze them in butter or olive oil and a dash of chopped parsley.
