    Oh, I remember well enough!

    To be an HB on a red day, it needs to:

    1. be 227g (assuming you used an 'old' potato)
    2. keep its skin on (ie you should have grated it skin and all)

    If you say no to either of those, it would need to be synned instead.

    Sorry :eek: but yes, you were right to check. It is the extra fibre in the skin that allows a potato to be counted as a B choice on a red day - so for example, if you fancy turning your 227g potato into SW chips on a red day, you can, but you need to keep the skin on (which in my opinion is better anyway as they go crunchier!)
