Special Delivery

 A few weeks ago I ordered a special delivery for Christmas.  These Jersey Royal new potatoes were specially grown to be ready and harvested in the week before Christmas.
 Dug up, packaged and posted within a few days of Christmas, I just had to have a little sample before the big day.
The mint is supermarket bought! if the new potatoes are out of season then so is the mint!  Needless to say the end product was absolutely perfect! Matron is looking forward to her Christmas Dinner.

Those potatoes look like the ones I like. The skin is thin and the potato has a yellow cast. Very Tasty.
I never knew about boiling them with mint though, is it just for taste?

The other essential ingredient is butter!
