There is something quite luxurious about freshly harvested tender new potatoes. These little pearls of the soil are sweet, compact and versatile and taste wonderful simply boiled and covered with lashings of butter or oil.  Why not make your own flavoured butters or drizzle over Wild Island’s Rosemary or Chilli infused oil.  These gems hold their shape and texture so well, that they also taste delicious fried (with garlic), or roasted (with figs and rosemary) and are great for potato salads too. Such is their versatility, this humble little spud tastes fab in a frittata whilst not forgetting their deliciousness when cooked on the BBQ.

You don't need to peel new potatoes, just rinse to remove any dirt. To boil, place potatoes into a pan of lightly salted boiling water, bring to the boil, and simmer until tender (about 10 mins) and drain.  Dress new potatoes as soon as they are cooked to help them absorb the flavour of the butter or oil.
