Boiled, baked, roasted or mashed – the humble potato must be one of the most versatile vegetables to cook with, whether you want to enjoy a simple spud, a sizzling braai potato or an elegant hasselback dish. From the easy to the exotic, get creative with our recipe ideas and put the spotlight on wholesome, nutritious potatoes.
A potato that’s safe for diabetics or followers of a low GI diet? That’s right: the low GI potato is taking South Africa by storm. Carbohydrates with a low GI release energy slowly so you stay fuller for longer and maintain steady energy levels. Carisma boasts a naturally low GI (55 versus an average of 70) and is the only potato that’s officially recognised as low GI by the GI Foundation of South Africa.
