Already those seasonal gems that we look forward to are starting to become more avaliable.

NEW POTATOES

New Potatoes should be kept in the fridge where its cold and dark like the ground . New spuds have a very low starch content when freshly dug and more sugar content which gives them the nice waxy texture when cooked and used in a potato salad

New potatoes should cut like soft candle wax . I usually lightly boil them in lighty salted water then turn the heat  off and let them finish off in the pot , drain and load with butter .If you want a mint taste but no fresh mint shake a teaspoon of mint sauce through the pot of potatoes .
