So what new potatoes are best for crushing? 

Well I adore Jersey Royals myself and rather are always my first choice – I  simply love them 

But I’ve also tried with many varieties and that all work, crushed / flattered or squashed – whatever you’d like to call them! 

New potatoes start to appear in about April and traditionally are around until about July  July. These days however,  you are able to get hold of them all year round
