Buyer's guide

Floury potatoes are available year-round. Avoid wrinkled, sprouted or discoloured potatoes.


Floury potatoes should be kept in a cool dark place (but not the fridge), preferably in a breathable sack or paper bag. They can keep for several months in the right conditions. Parboiled floury potatoes freeze well.
