“It’s easy to halve the potato where there is love”


This Irish proverb is never true in our house when the first of the new potatoes are dug.

New potatoes need only the barest of rinses

I’m not HALVING my potato with ANYONE! I think there is nothing more Irish, to have boiled new potatoes with golden butter, and just a little Irish Sea Salt.

add sliced spring onion and a very generous dollop of homemade mayonnaise.  I sometimes add a little extra olive oil too.

And there you have a great tasting accompaniment to anything really, for me its best with lightly grilled chicken and a fresh green salad.
