Product Information





Keep in a cool, dark place.


Cooking Instructions:
Oven Bake: Preheat oven. Wash the potatoes well. Dry and prick the skin with a fork. Place directly onto an oven shelf and bake for 1-1½ hours or until the skin is crisp and the flesh tender.
Oven Roast: Preheat oven. Peel and wash, then cut the potatoes into even-sized pieces. Part boil for 10 minutes. Drain then shake the pan to roughen the surfaces of the potatoes. Heat 4 tbsp of vegetable oil in a roasting tin. Add the potatoes and turn in the hot oil. Bake on the top shelf of the oven for 45-50 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Turn occasionally.
Fry: Peel and cut into chips. Wash and dry thoroughly. Fry in preheated oil at 190°C for 5-6 minutes. To mash. Peel and cut the potatoes into even sized pieces. Place in a pan with just enough water to cover, add salt if desired and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Drain well and mash with a little butter and milk, or some crème fraiche together with some freshly ground pepper

Covered in horrible black spots and smelt bad. The whole lot went in the bin. Who packs these spuds and where are they coming from? Not good enough Ocado!

Keep buying, keep trying, but every time these potatoes arrive they have black spots all over them and really not edible! Shame on you Ocado and Waitrose for supporting such low quality farming. At a relatively premium price you would simply expect more. Hope to NOT see these potatoes in the Ocado store in the very near future. Daniel

Poor Quality

I have also had very poor quality potatoes in my last few orders, all black in the middle, thought it was me until i saw all the other poor reviews!

A Disgrace

A whole bag of black middles! This is an absolute disgrace and not the standard I would expect from Ocado. I will never purchase these again1

Honey Glazed Rustic Lamb Roast

This must be the easiest roast dinner ever, serve the lamb simply carved with the hot potatoes, onions and fresh tasting salsa verde. There's no need for extra frills. If you're not a fan of anchovies, simply leave them out and season well with salt.
