The red skin contains beneficial anti-oxidants and the golden coloured flesh is high in nutrients, including vitamin D. Red Jackets come washed and ready to cook, with no need to peel. Distinctive lenticels give a unique appearance and leaving the skin on adds to the flavour as well as making meals look great. Red Jackets are ideal; for baking and roasting. When they are baked the starch converts to sugars, which delivers a sweet nutty flavour. However, they also hold together well for mashing and boiling. Gentle cooking is recommended to bring out the special fluffy texture. They are a winter potato, only available from April through to October.
