Russets for almost everything, but sometimes the tiny red ones for boiling and serving whole, and the small whites for doing salt potatoes.. otherwise good old russets. the family really dislikes the Yukons for some reason.

      The "Klondike" series of Idaho grown potatoes from Green Giant is in stores now.......a little expensive and worth every penny.

          My all time favorite is the Russet. Good for potato salad and essential for that crispy potato cake that goes with the roast duck Mr. Hoffman keeps talking about.

            Ah, the pommes Darphin. Magnificent! Absolutely the most wonderful potatoes I've ever had in my life.

              I was in Prince Edward Island a few years ago and I noticed potato fields everywhere and they were blooming many different colors.  I am sure they were different varieties.  I sorta like the Klondike which I believe are yellow and buttery?.
               
              Lisa is correct about the Russets although I have seen the interchanged with the Idaho,s perhaps mistakenly but advertised and sold the same way?

                  I love when threads come back.
                   
                  My wife is the potato salad maker in our house, and it's usually red potatoes for that (with the skin on). It's also our favorite baked potato. 
                   
                  That being said, I've noticed a decided decline in the past 6 months or so in the quality of red potatoes here in NJ (or wherever they actually come from), along with a jump in price to the point where they are no longer really worth it. 
                   
                  Anybody else noticed that?

                    According the the package, the Klondikes are trade names for several different potatoes. I've had the medium sized oblong, which are red ones with the yellow flesh, and the red fingerlings. I bought but have not yet eaten the yellow fingerlings. Most have been from Idaho, but I note that my most recent purchase is from Washington state.     To make it more confusing, the common variety "Yukon Gold" is sold by many, while "Klondike Rose", for example, is a Green Giant trade name.

                      I will never ever be able to again have my favorite potato.  My favorite came from my grandfather's garden.  He planted what was called "Irish potato".  I have never seen such pure white, dense, silky potatoes.  Every year he saved some potatoes for next year.  He would spread them out on the floor of the barn along with onions from the garden.
