Allotment New Potatoes (First Earlies)

Arran Pilot First Earlies

There is nothing to beat the taste of your first dug new potatoes. We sampled our first ones yesterday simply washed, boiled and covered with salt, pepper and a knob of butter – perfection!

On our Hitchin allotment we get to dig our first early potatoes ahead of time as we plant them in our poly tunnel. Each year we try a different variety and these are Arran Pilot potatoes.

With a white skin and flesh they tasted great and kept their firm waxy texture which will make them good for salads too.

Their yield however wasn’t particularly good so I think next year we’ll try something else.
