What’s up with our potatoes? Cooking them is like a lottery at the moment – even those tagged ‘gormet’. Uneven cooking, hard ‘bits’, strange discolourations, the list goes on. Had some really nice looking new potatoes yesterday, boiled in their skins just right. The nice ones were divine with a little butter, salt and pepper. The others were terrible and disappointing to all at the table.
