After the previous posting, I thought I would share with you what I did with some of the potatoes.
As the potatoes were of varying sizes, I selected 1kg of the smallest. Once cleaned, they were scraped if needed. I try to keep as much of the skin as possible. They were then diced to around 10mm cubed and placed in a saucepan of nearly boiling water. This does mean that some where cooked whole.
I like to keep the water only just simmering, this does mean that the potatoes are not knocked around. To check there are cooked I used a skewer and if the potatoes just fall off they are cooked.
For my potato salad (1kg of potatoes) I use around 200g of mayonnaise, usually Hellmanns Light, and 100g of grain mustard. I initially used some I got from a French Market in East Finchley a year of so back, however I now use Arran Grain Mustard.
With the mustard and mayonnaise mixed together in a bowl, the drained potatoes are added and mixed in. Usually we eat the first two portions warm with cold sliced meat or a portion of pie, and salad. At this time of year the salad is coming straight from the garden.
1kg of potato makes around 10 portions. After the first portion or two have been eaten warm, the remainder are placed in a storage container and kept in the fridge. Not sure how long it keeps for, we normally finish it within a week.
