charlotte potatoes
« on: August 12, 2009, 09:19 »

we dug up all the remaining charlotte potatoes last night and filled two sacks, (not full to the top mind) some of them are HUGE do they roast and bake ok, i've only been treating them as "new" potatoes and boiling them, suggestions please  :)

My Anya potatoes have turned out really large, as have the International Kidney variety.  I have roasted, chipped, steamed and mashed both varieties with great success.  I will be interested to hear the results of the Charlottes as I intend to grow these as well next year.

unfortunately charlotte potatoes are a salad variety and are renown for their waxy flesh and intense flavours, I grow these every year and always have too many so the whole family enjoys them.

I always say you can never have too many fresh salads yummmm

They keep well. Some people have them in salads of course but in the Bonfire household we prefer waxy potatoes with everything. Do not be put off by their being labelled as salad potatoes - there is no such thing.
They are lovely baked. Two sacks - well done.

Just finished: they were delicious baked in jackets: lovely taste, lovely texture  :tongue2: :tongue2: :tongue2:
Only criticism, the skins were a bit thin (I pefer a nice chewy skin), but you cant have everything  ::)

I kept them in a cool garage well into the new year. Make great garlic potatoes, in fact they are just great. The Queen of potatoes?
