“ Brand: McCain / Type: Potatoes „
I love sweet potatoes and so when I spotted these ones you pop in the oven on offer for a pound a bag in Asda and covered in rosemary and garlic I simply couldn't resist grabbing a bag and popping them in the freezer to have with a roast one evening. The Packaging: White plastic bag and on the front of the bag there is a photograph of the cooked sweet potatoes and I am told they are 'New' McCain Sweet Potatoes 'With Rosemary And Garlic' and that they are 'Chunky cut sweet potato with the subtle flavour or Rosemary And Garlic' and there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there along with the size being stated (which in this case is 400g). Other information on the back of the bag includes being told a bit about sweet potatoes, I'm told how to cook and how to store them, ingredients and a full nutritional rundown chart is listed, I am told that they are suitable for Vegetarians and are made with sunflower oil and contact details for the manufacturer are given. It's a nice enough informative bag however not easy to reseal! The Sweet Potatoes: Open up the bag you get huge chunks of yellow sweet potatoes though only a handful of them due to the size of each one. They give off a gentle and appetising aroma of garlic and all you do with these is pop them in a preheated oven for 18-20 minutes until golden. Easy to cook these really are and you don't need to use cooking oil at all. Once cooked they should be a nice golden colour as I have just said. They retain a natural moistness to them and a naturally sweet taste of potatoes and are not one bit soggy. They also possess (as stated on the packet) a hint of a garlic and rosemary flavouring that really isn't overpowering and takes nothing away front the natural flavour of the potatoes but actually enhances it. These taste great, light and fluffy and are a perfect meal accompaniment and myself and my flatmate who consumed them as part of a roast dinner gave them a huge thumbs up!
