McCain Simply Potato for Mash is made from peeled, boiled and mashed potatoes that are then blanched and frozen. It comes unseasoned to allow caterers to add their own and can be steam cooked from frozen in 15 minutes in a combi steamer, then whisked for three minutes, or cooked on the hob from frozen then whisked. It can be used for plain mash or for dishes where mashed potato is used, such as in duchess potatoes.
The product was designed by McCain Foods to fill a gap in the market for a quick and easy-to-prepare mash that can deliver a consistent quality all year round. It also claims to cut down on prep time and waste from potato peelings.

Why you should buy it:
The product is designed for chefs or caterers with little time to spare, but who want consistency across their offering. Jo Simmons, McCain Foods’ senior brand manager, said: “Great mash can really divide opinion if the texture or consistency is not quite right. It can also be very labour intensive for caterers to prepare using fresh potatoes and almost impossible to deliver to a high-standard on a consistent basis.
“McCain Simply Potato for Mash has performed fantastically in taste and operational trials and will revolutionise the preparation and delivery of mash, saving caterers time, and therefore money, while ensuring happy customers all year round.”
