Fabled Heirloom Potatoes from the High Andes

In the High Andes, two interesting varieties of potato, Yema de Huevo potato and the clay potato potato, are the most valued and sought after by connoisseurs in South American cookery.

Like Yema de Huevo, the flowers of Papa Chaco are colored, but in this case they are pale lilac with a white stripe or “star” in the center.
