Who thought tinned potatoes were a good idea?
Far better to fill a saucepan with freshwater from the kitchen tap, and heat until it starts bubbling away... Then put the potatoes in there to heat up, having drained off the water in the can down the kitchen sink.
Even then, they're only really any good if you stick them in a stew / casserole, and bury them in loads of beef gravy. Or with a salad, and bury them in a load of Heinz Salad Cream, or Mayo.
They're no good at all for mashed potato.
I suppose the one redeeming feature is it saves having to wash & peel them.
