Now's the week to stock up on your Kestrel chat potatoes for Christmas. They are at fantastic price this week at the farm and if kept cool will keep perfectly well in the cupboard or my preferred choice the fridge vegetable crisper till Christmas day. Kestrel’s have become popular of recent times, due to their versatility in cooking and great taste. It mashes smooth and has good texture after microwaving, they’re also excellent for roasting and frying. Kestrel Potatoes are an amazing nutrient dense food, low in calories and naturally low in fat. Bursting with vitamins and minerals, containing absolutely no cholesterol and when served with their skins, are a great source of fibre. Look out for these purple eyed beauties in store today.
HOW TO PICK
Pick spuds that feel firm and heavy. Kestrel’s naturally have purple eyes, make sure you avoid those with sprouting eyes, or green discolouration. For even cooking, choose potatoes that are similar in size.
HOW TO STORE
Store potatoes in a cool, dry place away from light - the kitchen cupboard is ideal.
