Don’t forget, St. Patrick’s Day is traditionally the day to plant your potatoes


13-03-2015 09:00

St. Patrick’s Day is traditionally the day to plant your potatoes, but if you don’t fancy waiting twenty weeks for your harvest, you can choose from over 110 delicious ways to celebrate the humble spud with Eveleen Coyle’s The Pocket Irish Potato Recipe Book.

 

With tips on when to buy them, where to store them and how to cook them perfectly every time, Eveleen Coyle has created the ultimate potato bible. Here are a few tips to getting your spuds right this Patrick’s Day and every day:

 

  • Always remove potatoes from plastic bags and store them in brown paper bags or bags made from natural fibres.
  • Not sure how much to make? You should allow 225g of potatoes per person, allow more if you are roasting them.
  • Even if potatoes are small, cut them in half – just one cut surface on each potato means they will cook faster.
  • Preserve the flavour of new potatoes by steaming them instead of boiling them.
  • With older potatoes, put them in a saucepan of lightly salted cold water and bring to the boil.

 

In The Pocket Irish Potato Recipe Book, bestselling author Eveleen Coyle transforms potatoes into delicious dishes for every day or for special occasions. Whether you prefer the classics like Dublin Coddle, Colcannon, Shepherd’s Pie and Winter Soup, or are looking to transform your spuds into something more adventurous like Roasted Butternut Squash and Potato Curry, Potato Pizza and Parmesan Potato Cakes, this pocket guide has something for everyone with easy to follow recipes and full colour photographs.

 

The Irish Pocket Potato Recipe Book is in all good bookshops now and available from www.gillbooks.ie, priced at €4.99.
