Potatoes, cabbage, and onion are a common staple in most American cuisine, yet time and time again, I see that people use the wrong variety when cooking. Sure, there's no real wrong or right, but there is definitely better and worse when it comes to taste. As my mother always told me, if you plan on eating it in your own body, why not do it right? After all, we only live once.
Luckily, I'm here to help and break it down for you. It turns out the different varieties of potatoes, onions, and cabbage do make a major difference in cooking (and taste). Learn to master each variety, and you'll cook like a pro in no time!
