These are varieties with a low starch and high moisture content. They typically have firm, creamy flesh and thin skins and will hold their shape when cooking. This makes waxy varieties the best choice for dishes where you want the potatoes to maintain their shape. Ideal for eating as new potatoes and used boiled, roasted or baked. Waxy potatoes should be used in dishes where you want your potatoes to remain intact, such as casseroles, gratins, soup and salads.
