Went the shop to buy spuds. I bought 'red potatoes' coz they were BOGOF. And 'ideal for mashing, boiling or roasting'.
Why are there spud varieties such as red, maris piper+ king eddy etc. Why are diff spuds gud for diff ways of cooking them??

i think its a question of the starch content in the spud!
the more starch the better for mashing i think

All down to different types of soil I would imagine.

Never sure why though when there is a shortage of spuds the price of ya chips goes up in the Chippy but the price never comes down when the shortage is sorted!!

Ive got chip making down to a fine art!
Cook em on a medium to low heat til soft. Then take them out, whack the heat up full blast . Put them bak in and they crisp up good n proper+ go a nice colour.

Am crap at peeling spuds-peel half the spud away.
Anyway-fried up the peelings-v.v. Nice indeed! Could hardly taste the differance, chips wiv skins on. Ive tryed this before with other type spuds and it tasted shite. Red potatoes- gud!! And as a brucy bonus-rude got roughage. ;-D

My favourites are Lincoln Maris Pipers. If you scrub them before peeling, then roast the peelings in the roasting tray with the rest of the Sunday dinner = heaven!

King Teds every time - great flavour.

I find reds take longer to cook.

But I do like Smash (for mash eat smash ... giggle, giggle, giggle etc).
