Dear SOS: I’ve heard about “Irish potatoes” but I can’t find them in any store. Can you tell me what the characteristics of this kind of potato are and where I can buy them? Thank you.
Dear Maja: Are you talking about Irish potato candies, also called “Easter eggs”? Here’s a recipe for them from the Web site Allrecipes.com. If you’re talking about an actual potato, we know them as russet potatoes.
