How To Buy Potatoes


  • Potatoes should be fairly clean and smooth
  • Avoid potatoes that are wrinkled or that have wilted skins or soft dark area. Cut and remove surfaces with a green appearance
  • Choose potatoes uniform in size for even cooking
  • Buy new potatoes in quantities which can be used within 48 hours of purchase as they quickly lose their fresh flavour
  • Washed raw potatoes do not keep as well as those purchased in dry-brushed form
