Classify us under INSPIRED! 2020 is over (HALLELUJAH!), and we’re ready to take on a new year.

We chose Red Potatoes from our pals at Green Giant™ Fresh because most red potatoes contain more moisture and less starch, which means they’ll remain firm during the cooking process. Their flavor is sweet and robust with a creamy, slightly moist mouth feel. TIP: This makes them a great meal-prep option because they’re less likely to dry out when cooked, refrigerated, and reheated. Green Giant™ Fresh suggests choosing red potatoes when roasting, boiling, or frying. Plus, the red skin produces higher antioxidant levels versus russet or white potatoes.
So, when choosing which vegetables to eat all year long, we recommend Green Giant™ Fresh because we know you want the best quality product available for both nutrition and taste. With over 25 years growing, packing, and shipping farm-fresh potatoes, we know that Green Giant™ Fresh are THE potato experts!
