Saw this on offer @ Morrisons today. Huge bags (12.5kg) of unwashed potatoes for £4.99, usually £7.50. The weight is the equivalent to a small child.

Works out at 40p per KG.

About time these started to come back down in price. I paid £6 for Melody potatoes 25kg sack at a local farm last week because i were disgusted at how expensive supermarket demi sacks have become.

Great thanks. Hope my local has them

if you don't want so much, asda have 1.75kg for £1

2.5 kg speciality Potatoes are half price only £1.19 @ Lidl. This weekend only! :-)

local nisa store sells wilja potatos for £3.99 for a 25kg sack and they are top quality.

I paid £6.00 for a 25kg sack of Estima spuds from our local garage, a lot cheaper than the supermarkets.

I think I'll pass

Weatherman was right weekend is going to be windy

As you all seem to be tattie experts can anyone suggest best tatties's for mash, and also chips so I can avoid buying grotty tatties - thanks

older tatties tend to be good chippers amongst what we buy (a right old mish-mash of varieties) ...& I get sulky if they are not crinkle cut, ..a crinkle cutter is darn useful getting your kid to help in the kitchen on a variety of veg, (handily) as a safe way of getting them to get a feel for pressure force required for knife cuts & chopping.

10p down the car bootie!

Maris piper / maris peer / king eddy's for chipping & gen purpose.

Desiree, Maris Piper or King Edwards, but Estima and Melody will do well and they can usually be found in the generic washed 'white' packs in supermarkets at lower prices; avoid Harmony, being mainly water they turn to mush - Supermarkets tend to work on a 60% mark-up on Veg so any option to buy at a farm gate is going to be a lot cheaper - Its also worth remembering that in Supermarkets you pay for a washed bright and smooth skinned potato; pointless when you peel them and end up with the same spud! - Washed potatoes also do not last anywhere near as long as dirty ones....

If in doubt, go for a bag of jackets, they will usually turn out fine, chipped, mashed or roasted.

Honestly, not so long ago a bag of potatoes did everything but now heaven knows what they have done to them. Supermarkets are selling duds I tell you.

The sacks from the farm shops really can't be beaten.

when will thy be back in yeovil
