Yellow creamer potatoes are small in size and are round to oval in shape, averaging 2-3 centimeters in diameter. The thin, smooth skin is tan to light gold, and there are some light brown speckling and a few shallow eyes scattered across the surface. The firm flesh is pale yellow to gold, dense and slippery, and boasts a waxy texture. When cooked, Yellow creamer potatoes have a velvety texture with a buttery flavor primarily due to its reduced starch content.
Yellow creamer potatoes are available year-round.
Yellow creamer potatoes, botanically classified as Solanum tuberosum, are grape-sized tubers prematurely harvested from many different varieties of yellow potatoes and are members of the Solanaceae, or nightshade family. Though often collected from the common yukon gold, Yellow creamer potatoes can also be harvested from any other yellow potato as long as they are 2-3 centimeters or less in diameter. Used similarly to regular sized yellow potatoes, Yellow creamer potatoes are commonly incorporated into dishes as a thickening agent or are served as a filling accompaniment to the main dish.
Yellow creamer potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and flavonoids such as anthoxanthin, which gives the potato its yellow color and provides some antioxidants.
Yellow creamer potatoes are best suited for cooked applications such as roasting, boiling, mashing, or grilling. Their waxy texture makes them ideal for potato salads or placed into soups, stews, curries, and chowders. Incredibly versatile, these potatoes can also be boiled and mashed or used to make gratins, hash browns, and purees. Yellow creamer potatoes are commonly roasted and smashed for a crispy and creamy side dish. Yellow creamer potatoes pair well with bacon, olive oil, herbs such as rosemary, thyme, oregano, sage, tarragon, and basil, chives, meats such as fish, poultry, beef, and pork, and vegetables such as green beans, asparagus, Brussel sprouts, and a green salad. They will keep for a couple of weeks when stored in a cool, dry, dark place. Yellow creamer potatoes should not be refrigerated as flavor and composition will be lost.
Yellow creamer potatoes are valued for their thin skins, rich flavor, and are typically harvested from the yukon gold variety, though any variety may be used as long as it stays within the size range. The yukon gold was a cross between a North American white potato and a South American yellow potato, thus blending the varieties to create a favorite household potato known for its versatility and mild flavor.
The yellow potato’s origin is relatively unknown but is believed to have been first recorded in South America. The yukon gold potato was created in the 1960s by Gary Johnston, scientist and agricultural icon in Canada and new yellow varieties are still being created today in regions all over the world and are being used as creamer potatoes. Yellow creamer potatoes are commonly found at specialty grocers, and markets in Europe, South America, Canada, Asia, and are gaining popularity in the United States.
