jersey royals

Postby scullion » April 19th, 2017, 10:03 pm

it's the season again. i bought three packs the other day but we haven't eaten any yet so don't know if they'll be good ones this year.
one pack i'm planning to keep as seed. if they produce anything they will no longer be 'jersey royals' but 'international kidneys' - doesn't have quite the same ring, does it‽

I'd kill for some especially as DS lives next to a field of the things.

Having said that the new, kidney, potatoes from OOP North have also been very good this year.

international kidney are exactly the same as jersey royals, just in the same way that a pasty 'ordinaire' and a cornish pasty are - same thing, different location.

Interesting article in this month's 'The Garden' on potatoes and terroir

We have just cooked the last of last seasons Pink Fir Apples, they were very lush...... Mr Z will have some in his salad box tomorrow with coleslaw and pickled herrings....

I like Jerseys too. Not sure of the price at this time of year.

I normally find the Cornish new potatoes better than the Jersey

we will be eating our first earlies in the next day or so, dug tonight from the poly tunnel.
we planted a few i had that had sprouted in our potato bin. they are pembrokeshire first earlies and the two i pulled out of the ground at the weekend were very tasty.
having looked online it seems that if they're grown outside of pembrokeshire they're called 'lady christl'. they are very prolific - about twenty decent portions from five or six plants with a mix of baby to fist sized tubers. there will be more next week - and therefore bigger.
i may well save some small ones for seed from next weeks batch.

We planted our PFA about 3+ weeks ago, it was always coupled with St. Patricks Day, and as long as any growth were earthed up in frosty times they should be OK.

Well the PFA are just starting to show, mind you they do need some rain..... :?

Whilst in T'cos yesterday they had 450g bags of Jersey Royals reduced from a £1 to 37p so grabbed 2 bags, they will go with the sea bream that was also reduced for supper tonight. :chops:

I can't wait to be able to get into town and get some. Apart from seasonal berries they are my favourite foodie thing!
