Garlic brings the best out of Jersey Royals

Garlicy new potatoes

A basic recipe which has become one of my favourite ways of serving new potatoes
Serves 4
28oz (800g) Jersey Royal new potatoes
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or another oil good for cooking for example avocado, coconut or macadamia

1 large bulb garlic, halved horizontally

2–3 tbsp leaf parsley, coarsely chopped

METHOD

1.  Cook the potatoes in boiling water for about 15 minutes, or until just tender, then drain.

2.  Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp oil in a small, heavy-based frying pan. Add the garlic, cut-side down. Cook over a moderate heat for 10 minutes, or until caramelised.

3. Squeeze the cooked garlic out of its skin into a bowl and mash with the remaining oil and parsley. Toss the potatoes in the garlic mixture and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
