My mother often made potato salad, after all I grew up on a farm in Idaho (home of the famous Idaho potato). We ate a lot of potatoes, and when summer came around, potato salad was a great way to serve up some of those potatoes.
What are the Best Potatoes for Classic Potato Salad?
- The best potatoes for potato salad are Yukon Gold or Red Potatoes that are able to hold their shape and keep their firm texture after they are cooked.
- I used Yukon Gold potatoes, but red potatoes would also work.
We also had hens that laid eggs for a while, but we mostly bought our eggs from other farmers who raised chickens. It is kind of funny now when I see my grandchildren with no clue as to where food originates. The grocery store is pretty much how far they think about it originating.
I grew up on a dairy farm and saw first hand the production of milk. We sold our milk to a company that pasteurized and homogenized the milk, but we actually drank raw milk. My dad liked cream and we actually used to let the cream rise to the top of the milk overnight and then skim the cream off of the top of the milk for my dad to eat on his cereal.
We drank the milk that the cream had been skimmed off of (which I now realize was skim milk). I really liked it when we went to the city to my grandparent’s home and drank their milk. They bought milk from the store and it was whole milk.
Years later, I realized that it wasn’t that the milk was raw milk that I didn’t like as much, but the fact that the milk was skim milk instead of whole milk. I still prefer whole milk to this day.
How Long Can Potato Salad Be Stored?
