    Yukon Gold or Yellow Flesh Potatoes

    Does anybody know where or if we can find these on the island? Or what's the Dutch equivalent? We've tried Ling's and Superfood to no avail. Need this specific potato!!!

    we did find once, the little skinny purple potatoes at superfood.
    you should ask the produce managers at both SF and Lings.

    I have found Yukon Gold at Ling's many times. Perhaps available later this week.

    Try the new fresh Market on route 4 in Paradera, if Lings and Super Foods doesn't have them. It's a nice market.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rg75F3IOwJs

    I wonder if anyone knows if you can get them in Europe and take them in your suitcase this trip? Pack some ziplocs?

    We tried at SuperFood on the last trip but nobody knew what we were talking about. We're going to try talking to somebody at Ling's in September.

    That's plan B. Good idea.

    Just curious, why do you need this specific potato?

    That's weird... we've never found them on many, many tries and the produce staff just point at ANY potatoes when we ask.

    Two things (both Cook's Illustrated recipes)... the starch content and consistency are important to both recipes.
