Tips & Notes
Skim the Fat: You can remove fat from soups and stews by dropping ice cubes into the pot. The fat will cling to the cubes as you stir. Be sure to take out the cubes before they melt.
Fat also clings to lettuce leaves; simply sweep them over the top of the soup. Discard ice cubes or leaves when done.
Watch the carb count with Yukon Golds. A medium sized Yukon Gold has 26 grams of carbohydrates. It also has insoluble fiber and a medium-sized potato has about 3g. It also has about 100 calories.
Yukon Gold potatoes contain 45 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C, an antioxidant vitamin. Not only does vitamin C help the body absorb iron, but it also promotes wound heeling and boosts collagen which is beneficial to bone and skin health.
Yukon Golds do not contain any saturated fat or cholesterol. Keep in mind that the way you prepare your potatoes can change this. If you slice them up and fry them in butter or oil, the fat content will become higher. This especially holds true if you deep fry them.
