Lemon Roasted Jersey Royals

by Elisa Roche


500g Jersey Royal potatoes
Olive oil
Maldon sea salt and cracked black pepper
3 large garlic cloves, peeled and sliced in half
Zest of 1 unwaxed lemon
Sprigs of lemon thyme


Heat the oven to 220C/ Gas 7. Scatter the Jersey royal potatoes into 1 large or 2 smaller roasting tins, and rub well in oil. Season generously with salt and pepper.

Put the potatoes in the oven for 20 mins. The skin should start to crisp and turn a golden colour. Reduce the oven temperature to 190C/Gas 5, shake the potatoes, add the garlic and cook for a further 20 mins.

Remove the potatoes from the oven and, using a large grater setting, grate lemon rind over them. Add lemon thyme sprigs, give everything a toss and return to the oven for 5 more mins.

A large veg box gives us plenty of wonderfully locally grown veg, delivered to our door. I think it is excellent value and the new website makes it very easy to add extras that we might fancy each week. I highly recommend Walmestone Growers
