    Default Jersey Royals

    I've been expecting a post from Dordie....he is usually one of the first to buy these delicious potatoes.

    I'll be over the Co-op a bit smartish in the morning, I'll have a peck or three of those. Grateful for the heads up. The state of my eyes decrees that nothing is 'popping up' as often they have done in the past, i'm having to peer.

    Bought some last week - and they were totally tasteless - didn't even smell like proper JRs - big disappointment.

    Bought some Lincolnshire ones in the market a few days ago - and they tasted just like Jersey Royals used to to taste - delicious all slathered in butter! Did I miss a memo somewhere that said Lincolnshire had been moved to Jersey??

    I got some loose ones from Tesco last week and they were scrumptious, so they were.

    Greetings from sunny Lincolnshire. Didn't see them in the central market here until later than usual even though lots of crops have come early this year. I think Morrisons basically cornered them all early on, but I eventually got some from one of the local farm shops and they are bloody good. Labelled as "new potatoes" of course because even though they're the same variety you can't actually call them Jersey Royals unless they're from Jersey. So if the ones you got from Lincolnshire were called Jersey Royals, they weren't grown in Lincolnshire.
    YOU LOST. Deal with it
