  4. Thinly slice red onion and marinate in a little apple cider vinegar while the potatoes cool.
  5. Make mayonnaise by blitzing an egg, oil, apple cider vinegar, salt and garlic. (Easier than a whisk!).

  7. Just the right amount of fresh, bright crunch and creaminess. ❤️

 

Fun Fact!

Ure is Maori word for "penis". "Nika" is a transliteration of an offensive english word beginning with N... The name of this potato is offensive. The potato is also known as "tutaekuri", which means "dog poo". Despite the terrible names, this is a quintessential Maori potato and the most recognisable taewa.
