The beginning of summer means several exciting things for us: warm evenings, barbecues and the launch of one of our favourite seasonal spuds: Cornish new potatoes.

To celebrate the Cornish new potato season, we’ve asked some of our favourite foodie bloggers to create delicious recipes with this versatile spud. Download your copy for free here

Five farmers from across Cornwall, with land covering the length and breadth of the region, will be supplying Tesco stores nationwide with delicious seasonal crop from mid-June until the beginning of August.

Characterised by their thin fluffy skins and natural saltiness, Cornish new potatoes are favoured by customers for their delicious taste and convenience. The delicate skins means that there is no need to peel and can be enjoyed boiled or roasted, straight from the pan!

Being grown in the rich, fertile Cornish soils close to the sea gives the potatoes a subtle balance of natural salinity and sweetness, setting them apart from other new potatoes. 

As well as being the perfect ingredient for summer salads, why not pair them with other seasonal favourites, such as our Cornish mackerel and potato tray bake or as an accompaniment to fresh mussels.

We’ve teamed up with some of Britain’s best food bloggers who have shared their ideas for how to make the best use of Cornish new potatoes. Their recipes can be found in our Cornish new potato e-recipe book, available to download for free.
