Warm Jersey Potato Salad

JERSEY Royals are bursting with flavour, this new potato has only a short season so be sure to feast on them while you can.
These potatoes are a true seasonal gem, they are sought after much in the UK, where we are very lucky, from the exceptional growing climate of the island we are sent 99 per cent of the crop while the islanders enjoy the rest.
When buying Jersey Royals the early season potatoes are small and very tender, the later the season gets the larger they are but pack a lot more flavour, so both are fantastic, unwashed potatoes is what you should be looking for as they store far better wearing a jacket of dirt.
For a nice warm salad or accompaniment to lamb or beef, gently wash the potatoes, do not peel them as the majority of the flavour lies just beneath the skin. Simply boil or steam the potatoes, cutting the big ones into smaller pieces, once cooked (15-20 minutes) lather with butter, sea salt and black pepper, lots of chopped herbs and there you have it.
