Bintje Potatoes

Grown these for the first time this year on the advice of some locals. Known as a good all rounder by the French.

Have to say I'm impressed with its roastability. It's a floury potato and on Sunday we had them roasted in with the lamb joint. Delish :0)
Last evening I roasted some in duck fat and they were v.good too.

We bought these before we found some King Ted seed tatties; they are yet to be dug up. But, for those of you in France and you can't find the King Ted's I'm happy with the Bintje for roasting. Not tried mashing it yet but I think it will be good for that too. At the moment I'm still enjoying our Belle de Fontenay, nice crushed with some butter for those days when I don't want a plain, but healthier, boiled potato :0)

We grew them too, but they did attract Scab, good enough when peeled though and as you say lovely and floury. Look out for Europa too Biggs, these are similar, lovely and floury and ideal for Jackets, Roasties and Frites. They are on offer at the moment in Lidl for 1euro 69cents for 5kg, and you can't grow them for that !!

Aha, looks like we were lucky then, Yummy. Might be something we have to keep an eye out for next year. We do rotate the crops as I hope that helps.

I have great difficulty getting OH into a Lidl or Aldi :0( but that's an excellent price. I'll look out for the Europa. I'll have to try and arrange a 'girlie' shopping trip :0)
