Product information

This heritage variety of King Edward potatoes are best cooked with the skin on to maintain the attractive distinctive appearance. They have a floury texture that gives a great light, fluffy centre and crunchy outside. The knack is to par-boil to the point just before they start to fall apart and get them nice and dry before coating with very hot fat. Goose fat is one of the best fats you can use for roasties, but if you find it too rich you can use a light olive oil instead.
Light, fluffy, Great for oven baked crispy wedges

Black Throughout

Worst bag of potatoes I have had for a long time; at least a third of them had open black scars on the skins which went right through to their centres - it's hard to believe they were King Edwards. I won't be buying these again.

useless for baking or wedges

Most have black bits. Hidden by the skin, so would not even be able to cut out if baking or making skin on wedges. Bought 3 bags as a bundle offer: all were the same.

I have bought these in the past and they have been really good. This lot I bought are not good quality. They are bruised below the skin which means when peeled there are lots of black bruises. I have had to throw away half the potatoes bought.

Spuds you will like

These are currently on offer so I bought a bag. Very firm and fresh spuds, just what we want. No mouldy or sprouting ones. So far I've tried roasting them will excellent results. What a find.
