Marketed as 'tasty, all rounder potatoes' they use a variety off potato called Jelly, which variety have a 'creamy buttery taste, a lovely yellow flesh'. Being an all-rounder they are great for boiling, roasting, baking, mashing and even for making chips, in fact all your family potato needs!
The return of a proper paper potato sack to the supermarket shelves is a very welcome sight, and a far more environmentally friendly way of packaging, not to mention being better at keeping your potatoes fresher for longer.
We tried the potatoes last month, indulging in lovely, warming jackets one cold night, served with the classic cheese and baked beans - my children are traditionalists! We were all amazed by how crispy the potato skins turned out, with both Lara and Sophia declaring the crispy skins "yummy!" We all really liked the fluffy insides too. Plus these medium-sized potatoes are a great size for children.
The second recipe I tried was my version of a Russian salad, although I guarantee it isn't a patch on the authentic Olivier and Vinegret recipes! My salad involved boiled potatoes, radishes, cucumber, spring onions, mayonnaise, and lots and lots of dill. Very tasty it was too! The GreenVale Farm Fresh potatoes when boiled and cooled are slightly floury and the edges break down just enough in the salad, a great texture for a potato salad. You can see their fab golden colour here too:

These are indeed a great all-rounder potato, and at a great price.
I think I'm going to try this rather delicious-sounding Spicy Nacho Wedges recipe next...
