Jersey Royal Potatoes are late this year due to the cold spring – it’s as if they have been holding out for the Royal Wedding. They pair up wonderfully with fresh mint and butter, and with a rack of lamb and some persian seasoning, would be a great celebratory meal. (see here for the recipe)
Jersey Royal Potatoes are grown by a small number of Jersey farmers, often using seaweed from the Jersey beaches as fertilizer. The Island climate and soil give the Jersey royal potatoes a distinctive nutty, earthy flavour that are delicious on their own, but can ge lightly roasted, added to salads and fritatas.
It’s a short season, so make the most of this most British of delicacies and make sure to butter up your minted Royals this weekend in time for the Royal wedding.
