Salad Blue potatoes are believed to have come from amateur breeding in the Victorian period. With a deep blue skin and flesh to match this variety has a high percentage of dry matter meaning it has a fluffy texture perfect for baking, roasting, mashing and wedging. It will retain its colour when cooked but steaming over boiling will preserve this best as boiling can leach some of the colour.
Being one of our colourful varieties they are rich in antioxidants, particularly anthocyanin which lays claim to a variety of health benefits including improved cardiovascular health, dementia prevention and increased longevity. As well as the fact that potatoes are very low in sugar and salt and are gluten- and fat-free this variety is definitely one to try if you are looking for a healthy meal option.
