Potatoes. Starchy goodness in such a small package! This is another staple to have on hand, something you can add to your mix of fruits and vegetables when you happen to have them.
I don’t cook them, nor do I peel. I do, however, wash them prior to feeding. Then, I simply chop and serve. There are several varieties of potatoes – red, russet, white, gold, sweet, and then some – all are fine to feed. When purchasing, look for firm potatoes with no soft spots or sprouts (growths). If you find that your gliders aren’t touching them raw, chop them and with the help of Chef Mic (microwave, get it?), cook them for a short time to soften them up. Not too soft, tho, or you may find that your gliders turn their noses up at the mush factor.
