Cooking up treats with the humble potato
Article in images



Big in size and big on starch, these potatoes change texture easily when cooked, so these are the sort you use for mash, soups and lower-fat chips (they don't absorb the oil very easily).   

King Edward: This floury potato has white skin with pink coloration and cream to pale yellow flesh. It's a main crop variety and is excellent for baking, chipping, roasting
and mashing.

Bintje: Oblong-shaped with shallow eyes, yellow skin and flesh, bintje potatoes come from The Netherlands and are very popular. They make great soups, chips and mash.  

Sante With a light yellow skin and flesh and a dry, firm texture, this versatile potato is fantastic for boiling, roasting, making chips and wedges.
