Pink fir apple potatoes

pink fir apple potato Oct 10

I'm not sure if I need some therapy for this but I have been raving recently about how good the pink fir apple potato is. It is one of the crops of potatoes we grew this year and we are very pleased with the results. It has a lovely pink skin - though how fir apple comes into the name is not something I can answer.

Cook them in their skins which are after all their most nutritious part. Lightly boil them. Very good as a salad potato.

This is one we are hoping to grow again next year.
