kerr's pink potatoes

delivered right to your door, who knew this service was available.  Kerr's Pink potatoes have a distinctive pink colour with deep eyes. They are quite floury and starchy. They are very good for mashing and boiling but can also be chipped.

  1. Hi Bill, How interesting about the potatoes! I love mashed potatoes. That is a lovely stone building.

  3. In Olden Tymes we had a van come every week delivering vegetables. Another came daily delivering milk. And another daily bread. Weekly fish. And often ice-cream.

    Not any more. They call it progress.

    God bless.

  7. My grandmother loved floury potatoes but I haven’t heard anyone else refer to them that way in all the years since Nan died. Nan would love them Bill.

  8. I've heard of milk deliveries and drug deliveries but never potato deliveries. I guess, why not, potatoes and good and the bags are heavy. Just so they don't get stolen before you get them into the house! Love the way you got that truck entering the frame and I love that stone building, too.

  15. When I was a boy we had delivery men for just about everything including potatoes. Now there's just the postman and the milkman left - and the milkman delivers to fewer and fewer each year.

  16. Makes sense for a farmer to deliver directly to the customers! I get beer delivered!

  17. A service welcomed by many I'm sure.

  18. Now that's a nice service! The best potatoes I've ever had have been in Ireland. (I'd had no idea they could be so tasty.) And at one memorable meal I had them prepared three different ways.

  19. I wish we had more home delivery service here for food. The only one I know of is Schwan's which delivers a variety of food.
