Types of potatoes
Hardly any food is as versatile as potatoes and with over 200 varieties in the USA and Germany there are many to choose from. Which also means type is of course important. Not every potato can be the star ingredient for mashed potatoes or a potato salad.
At the most basic level, there are two things that sets them apart: the amount of starch versus the amount of water a potato contains. Predominately, there is a basic distinction between mealy/floury, all-purpose (medium-starch) and low-starch (waxy potatoes, which hold their shape) varieties. And this is why it is important to choose the right variety when preparing a certain type of recipe.
