Fortyfold potato

[English] plural Fortyfold potatoes

Fortyfold is a mottled purple-skinned potato with deep eyes, dating from 1836 and which is just being reintroduced having not been produced commercially in the UK since 1945. Its yellowish-white, floury, buttery-flavoured flesh makes delicious fluffy mashed potato. It is equally good baked or roasted.
