I was recently sent a bag of the GreenVale Farm fresh potatoes to sample; I tried cooking various dishes and found that the GreenVale Potatoes worked well in all of them. Their firm texture with a slightly sweet flavour allows them to be versatile and you can mash them, make wedges with them, roast, fry or boil them .They are suitable for any method of cooking giving a tasty end result.
The potatoes are not only delicious but have many other qualities too such as:
  • Great provider of vitamin C
  • Naturally fat free
  • Great source of fibre
  • Absolutely no cholestrol
  • Great source of vitamin B
  • Bursting with vitamins & minerals
  • Very low in salt
  • And low in calories
As an added bonus and good for the environment too all GreenVale potatoes came packaged in a 100 % recyclable unique traditional paper sack.The bags are 2 kg so they are perfect for a small family. The paper bag helps to keep the potatoes fresher for longer too.
GreenVale Farm Fresh potatoes are sold at Tesco and Booths. For more information and recipe ideas visit  the Green Vale farm web site

All the views and opinions expressed in this  in this post are my own.
