Shetland Black 1923 (1.5kg Bag)

Delivery included in price.

Shetland Black is a Forgotten Food with The Slow Food UK was added to the national collection in 1923 but probably dates from Victorian times when there was a great deal of potato breeding using coloured varieties. Unlike commercial varieties, Shetland Black potatoes and many other heritage varieties, are not as high yielding The Shetland Black have a netted, very dark blue skin with shallow eyes. The flesh is yellowish with a markedly blue vascular ring. They are very tasty and floury - real crofter fuel.


Saute, Bake Roast or Steam - Shetland Black fry really well and the strong blue patterns caused by the distribution of the vascular tissue in different slicing directions could easily be the basis for some creative sautéed potatoes, crisps, etc.
