I'm not much of a prices person, but have you tasted Golden Wonder? I've always fancied growing them but they're a main crop and I like to reuse the space

Golden Wonder are Ok but I prefer Queens or kerrs pink - Both very floury. English tastes run to a waxier spud.

Golden Wonder is a good chipper IIRC.

Personally I would prefer a big bowl of mash with loads of butter and black pepper

We only have mash with smoked haddock really, so that's about once a month. She likes wedges & roasties, I like jackets

Microwaved jacket spuds are an abomination and should be smited.

Please tell me you're an oven man and you eat all the crispy skins up?

I would rather eat the crispy skins than what's inside them to be honest, the crispier the better. You won't believe this but neither my wife or mother in law knew how to make a jacket potato before I showed them

That's sort of the wrong way round isn't it

How about rice

They didn't know how to cook rice either

Seriously though if I'm at my mum's there's usually at least a few people that don't eat the skins and I'll polish them all off.
