WHAT IS A CANNED NEW POTATO?

Canned new potatoes are simply small baby potatoes dug from the field and peeled before being canned. You Can eat straight from the can because they have already been cooked through. You’ll notice  they taste better if you add a few ingredients for seasoning (see the recipe at the bottom of the page)

ARE CANNED NEW POTATOES HEALTHY?

As usual, canned new potatoes are healthy, depending on what you are looking for in your diet. Potatoes are part of a healthy balanced diet. That said, if you are on a low carb diet or a diabetic diet, then these white potatoes might not be the perfect thing for you.

  • Try your potatoes with some other spices, you may find you might like things like cumin, thyme, rosemary or other delicious spices! Potatoes are like a blank canvas!

Whenever I've used tinned potatoes all I've done is put them in a saucepan, heated them up and serve with just a small knob of butter.

I decided to look to see if there was any way of making them better because I was having belly pork marinated in maple and didn't have fresh potatoes.

Your recipe sounded nice so gave it a go (Didn't have unsalted butter so used "I can't believe it's not butter, light". And they were amazing.

Thanks for sharing. Have written recipe down and will use it all the time with tinned spuds. Also going to try it with fresh potatoes.

Wayne, I'm so glad that you found this recipe useful! It will work with fresh potatoes too, but you'll want to cook them through first and then start the process of this recipe. Be sure to salt the water you cook your fresh potatoes in. I hope you'll take a look around, there are a lot of recipes here for canned vegetables that you might find useful. Take care and let me know if I can help with anything else!

Can I use my air fryer (omitting the liquid) to "roadt" my canned potatoes?

Hi Tami, I'm not sure if you can do that or not as I have never tried.
