Russet Potatoes Empty Russet Potatoes

Post by SunFan Sun Apr 08, 2012 11:56 am

In my 4 months at Lakeside I have yet to come across a real Russet potato.

Yes I know a few restaurants like The Early Bird and Bruno's serves Russets but I really crave a good old baked potato with butter and sour cream at my home.

Rumor has it Super Lake carries them occasionally but I haven't come across them.

Does anyone know where I can buy a bag?????

Thanks

Sometimes Super Lake or ask Pancho when he will get more in.

I think Costco has them?

The cook @ my favorite fishing spot....Aguamilpa boils Mexican grown potato's in water and canola oil ......when done they are not pulpy and are as close as you can get to a russet....except for the thin skins. Beer For hash browns, try Delicias .....if you like them you can buy them @ Costco. They are dried russets....simply rehydrate and cook em the way you like em. Beer

We also bring back a 10 lb. bag of russets 3 to 4 times per year from AZ. Usually put them under the back seat in the SUV.....when checked...never an issue.

Mazatlan is the only place I've seen baked potatoes as street food. Mexican potatoes but baked in tinfoil. They cut them open and you can add a number of extras; meat bits, celantro, onions and creama. Very good

Try this; it’s not anything like a good baked potato but good never the less, a great dish. Scrub potatoes, cut into about 1 ½ inch cubes, rub with olive oil, salt & pepper to taste and a small bit of chopped up rosemary. Spread out on a cookie sheet try to keep it to a single layer. Bake in a 350 degree oven until potatoes somewhat crispy/chewy on the outside and done on the inside. Mmmmm

I read somewhere, on one of these boards, they were "illegal", "contraband", etc.,   lol!....  when they seem to be in several places around the area.

They are neither.  There's a high import duty on US russets, these come from Sonora.

Yikes!  We raised our own beef for 25 years before coming here.  The only beef we eat here comes from Costco and even that is very seldom.

Wow! A thread I started 2 1/2 years ago gets updated.

I now just pop down to the Tianguis on Wednesdays to pick up few Russet potatoes whenever I need a fix.

I know I am late posting this, but the "russet" spuds that I saw at SuperLake are NOT russets but red potatoes covered in brown dirt.  I rubbed and rubbed until I got past the dirt and saw the red skin.  A Mexican woman next to me scratched one with her fingernail and again the red skin.  Either Pancho is pulling the wool over our eyes or his suppliers at the Abastos are fooling Pancho.  Sorry--I won't pay 29 pesos for red spuds.

BTW--I was hungry for those little red potatoes a couple of months ago. Checked the ones that Pancho sells and they were white spuds with red dye on them. What's up with that?????

Yup they are red not Russet/Idaho potatoes!

Go to the Weds Tianguis.

First fruit and vegetable seller on the left going South just north of the cross street (Camino Real I think) sells real Russets.

Just leave some for me!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can also get russets at the store next to the Pechugon chicken shop and in the green fronted store on the Caraterra in the block above Colon.  They both always have them.
