Potatoes.
Perfect for creamy mash. Carefully grown for their smooth texture and full flavour. Working in partnership with our trusted growers across the UK, our red potatoes are carefully chosen throughout the year to ensure we bring you the best tasting varieties at the right time. One of our growers, Alistair Priestley, grows potatoes just south of Lincoln, where the fertile, sandy clay soils provide a fine tilth to protect the rich, red skins of their potatoes. The smooth, waxy texture is ideal for making creamy mash.
