Jersey Royal Recipes

Baked Jersey Royal Potatoes with butternut squash, sweet potato and ricotta cheese with sour cream, rocket, parmesan and walnut salad.

Method

Gently wash the Jersey Royals and dry them well on a kitchen towel. Pierce their skins with the point of a sharp knife.

Place on a baking tray lined with Maldon salt and bake in a pre- heated oven 200c for about 35 minutes.

Dice the butternut squash and sweet potato.(approx one cm cubes) Heat a frying pan over a medium heat add the butternut squash and sweet potato and stir fry with a little olive oil and salt for one minute. Turn the heat down to very low, check after ten minutes the squash and sweet potato need to be tender with a bite. Add the garlic and cook for a further minute. Remove from the frying pan and place in a stainless steel bowl. Beat in the ricotta and 25 ml of the sour cream. Season with salt and pepper.

Mix the rest of the sour cream with the chopped parsley.

Dress the rocket with the olive oil and lemon juice, add the roasted walnuts and season with salt and pepper.

When the potatoes are cooked make an incision down the centre of the potatoes with a sharp knife and squeeze gently with fingers and thumbs to open up. Spoon a little of the sweet potato mixture in each of the potatoes, place back in the oven for three minutes. Place three potatoes around the plate, garnish with the salad, spoon a little sour cream on top of the sweet potato mix and sprinkle the parmesan over the salad and the potatoes.
