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.
