  • Seasonal recipe No 45: Roast Cornish new potatoes with garlic and lemon

    Posted on May 23rd, 2010 charlotte No comments

    This is a simple way of cooking new potatoes that’s very different from the usual buttered, boiled or steamed. It comes from Henrietta Danvers, who’s one of Camel CSA’s volunteer picking and packing team members.

    Serves 6

    Preparation: 10 minutes
    Cooking: 45 minutes

    750g baby new potatoes, skin on
    4 tbsp olive oil
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1 lemon, zest and juice

    Preheat the oven to 220C (200C fan) or gas mark 7. Wash the potatoes, keeping the skin on. Put them in a roasting pan.  Drizzle half the oil over the potatoes and season. Roast for 45 minutes and remove when soft. Mix the garlic, remaining oil and lemon zest and juice. Spoon through the hot potatoes and serve.
