Organic Jersey royals
Unique new potatoes from Jersey – very sweet and nutty, with paper-thin skin. The season is brief, so fill your boots.
Jersey Royals are the prince of new potatoes – superbly sweet and nutty, with paper-thin skin and waxy, cream-white flesh. Since their discovery in the late 1800s, they’ve been grown exclusively by a small group of growers in Jersey; the island’s unique microclimate creates the perfect conditions for this special spring spud to flourish. A whole year’s care goes into growing them, but the season is all too brief. Fill your boots.

How to prepare
No need to peel their delicate, flavourful skins – just scrub gently in cold water. They should only take 10-15 mins to boil in a pan of salted water; some bay and split garlic cloves would be welcome additions to the pan. New potatoes also roast well, especially with a few sprigs of rosemary and cloves of garlic. They’ll take about 40 mins at 210°C/Gas 6.
