Crushed Klamath Pearl Potato Cakes by chef Leif Benson
The Klamath Pearl is a tasty little gem grown by Klamath Basin Fresh Direct, an organic potato company in Southern Oregon. The Pearl is known for it's unusually small size, snappy skin, and creamy texture.
They are as versatile and easy to prepare as any potato on the market, as chef Leif Benson demonstrates in the video below.
