I've recently been able to start buying organic potatoes, and was struck by how delicious they are, they taste so much better than the big old baking potatoes I was buying. So yesterday I had the idea of trying a potato test at lunch using the organic potatoes, which were a fairly small size. I made a delicious kind of potato stew with broad beans, lemon and garlic, it was so good I'm going to post it in the food and recipes section. Husband had a large plate and enjoyed it, but was worrying that it was going to spike him.
One hour pp: 135!!!!!!!
One hour 30: 125
Two hours: 110
Success!!!!! I'm wondering if it's also due to the fact that I didn't overcook the potatoes, they were slightly firm not mushy. Can't wait to try some more variations, and I'm really delighted to get potatoes back on his menu.

I did try red potatoes and they didn't work, but that was a couple of months ago. Maybe it's time for a re-test.
I just posted the recipe, it's delicious, viewtopic.php?f=5&t=29022
The same thing happened to my husband and it turned out to be the incredible weight loss and better health in all aspects. He got off all meds. Now no matter what kind of potato he eats he gets a good reading for glucose.
