Usually have fluffy mash, now its like glue. Usually have crispy roasts with fluffy inside, now they have a sort of chewy outside.
It's just been the last week. Have tried maris piper (my usual) and also king Edwards, both the same. All cooked as usual. Seem to remember this happening briefly before- is it the time of year? Can I do anything to go back to nice spuds? Buy from a supermarket is it worth going to a farm shop?
barley got it right with starch to sugar.Unfortunately we get to the time of the year that potatoes are getting worse. I got some tatties from the farm shop-lots of waste but they taste fine. Try to get some new tatties if you won't find any good ones from last season or switch to rice/pasta/noodles (that's what I do)
