Flaky skin new potatoes

David M | Aug 25, 201902:54 AM     4

Good morning,

I'm looking for real new potatoes, rarely seen anymore.

Are these cobblers ?

All "new" potatoes in stores are smooth skin.

While these are good, they are no comparison to the flaky skin variety.

In Ontario , I bought flaky skin new potatoes at a roadside stand near Alliston @ 10 years ago.

Shoulda copied the address , I drove around the area a few years after , but couldn't find.

You can still buy flaky skin new potatoes occasionally at some roadside stands in PEI.

thx
David
