This is the time of years for new potatoes. Coming thick and fast from Sian’s allotment is a variety call Linzer Delikatesse.
This variety was my father’s allotment favourite and now every year, his colleague Francis Nichols, sends us some seed. Sian dutifully plants them for a bumper summer crop.
Linzers are easy to clean when harvested, cook brilliantly and are delicious hot or cold and keep in the fridge for a good while.
A triumph of edible starch!
For the fuller picture on this variety go to the European Potato Database, to know what your grow.
Hopefully the impending ‘NO DEAL’ Brexit will not mar our access to this important databank,
