Often with a take away pizza, I like to make my own little side dishes to go with it and a potato salad is my favourite side dish. Rather than being lazy and simply buying a ready made potato salad from the supermarket, I prefer to buy a tin of new potatoes and make the salad myself, which is cheaper, tastier, probably healthier and it means that I will always have some at home if I keep a couple of tins in a cupboard. The ones I always buy are the Asda Smart Price ones as they are really cheap and they come in a nice big tin so there's always plenty to go round. Inside, the tin is full to the top of salt water, which gives the potatoes a bit of flavour, and ... Read the complete review

My partner and I got home quite late last night and as we were both ravenous I was looking for a quick and easy dinner to make for us both, instead of running round to the chip shop (my partner's suggestion... tsk tsk!). I rummaged through my freezer to see what little delights were waiting in there for me, and settled on a packet of frozen cheese crisp bakes. After reading the packaging and noticing that they would not take long to cook, I popped them in the oven and set about looking for something to eat alongside them. It was when I was raking about in our kitchen cupboards that I came across some tinned vegetables. I thought that this would be ... Read the complete review

Asda Smartprice new potatoes in salted water come provided in an aluminium can with a white & green paper label which shows the nutritional information & cooking instructions which are all simple to read and the can looks very simple. It does not have a ring pull but as this is just a budget product I wouldn't really expect one. Once I open the can with a can opener there is lots of beige coloured potatoes within water which is highly salted & to cook these potatoes I simply pour these out in to a saucepan with the salted water and then warm them through on the hob for around 6 or 7 minutes just to make sure they are well cooked ...

Not the ideal way to buy potatoes but at least these are new potatoes and having a tin in stock does come in handy for making soups etc. They are in essence a canned vegetable convenience food. They are also very cheap at 29p per can and for many will represent a good value buy. The potatoes are of various sizes and come stuffed in a green and white 345g can (rather than the illustrated red and white one) with only salt water for company. The can is of the ring pull design which is a blessing, making the can easy to open and quite unusual on a cheaper brand of canned food. Once opened and poured into a bowl the potatoes appear a uniform off-white although I ... Read the complete review

I sometimes use tinned potatoes when I am making a stew, or a casserole because it's fast and easy to do. Previously I have been buying branded ones, believing that I was getting better quality. However, when I saw these for 22p at Asda, I decided to give them a try. The green and white can is 345g and is full to the top with potatoes and covered in salt water. The ring pull on the top of the can makes it easy to open. The first thing I noticed when I opened these was a brown mark on a potato at the top of the can. This is quite likely to put me off altogether when it comes to cheap food, but I decided to investigate further before I made my mind ... Read the complete review
