Non-white potatoes

octogirlSeptember 21, 2011

I'm planning on pressure canning potatoes for the first time, understand about the need for peeling and washing well, but have a question: there are two potato recipes in my big Ball book, one for sweet potatoes and the other for "white potatoes." I have a variety of colorful potatoes: white, yellow, red, and even blue. Does it matter?

I love this forum. Thanks for being here!

No it doesn't matter just as long as they aren't sweet potatoes (yams) and are properly aged/matured.

But some of the colored potatoes don't tolerate the canning processing as well as fool old whites. They tend to be softer, more mushy. So I assume you'll be jarring the different colors separately?

Yes, I will. I'll do a few jars of each and compare. The potatoes are fine right now in their wooden and cardboard boxes - it sounds like this is a project that can wait until later in the fall after the seriously perishable produce is under control. Thanks very much, Dave.
