There is one seasonal event in the food calendar that we look forward to with great anticipation, the arrival of new potatoes. As potatoes go, there is nothing like the earthy flavour of an early potato. We do both grow our own first early potatoes, but given our location up in the North East of Scotland these are not harvested until late June/early July and even then the success of the harvest depends hugely on the weather! That’s why we love when the Jersey Royals hit our shelves, in our opinion they are the king of all potatoes. We are both quite happy to boil these little gems and eat them with a little butter and a sprinkling of salt. However for those looking for a change, here are two salads one cold, one warm.
