I do doctor them, double the butter, add pepper. I fed them to my Mom and had to convince her they were instant.

It's too bad we really have to search to find different varieties of potatoes around here. Typical supermarkets have russets and reds and "baby" potatoes of either. It was like a miracle when they started having Yukon Golds readily available.

For all of our American excesses, we're really limited in many ways. We're stuck with uniformly sized and boring potatoes instead of be offered a variety.

This is the site I use to pick my seed pots each year, I have about 160 lbs of 3 types in winter store, Cara for jkt spuds, Roosters for roast and french fries, Maris Pipers for mash. I use these most years, we will use Charlotte again next year for salads and pick 2 other types. The British Potato Variety Database

At first I thought you meant the kind of pot that you boil your potatoes in. I read the article and they didn't mention cooking pots. All they talked about was varieties of potatoes.
