Hey Foodies, it’s Heather! When I moved to PEI years ago I noticed a lot of hype about “new potatoes”. It’s kind of a funny thing when you’re from-away. What’s that all about? Now I know.
It’s because Islanders take a lot of pride in farming and we appreciate our farmers, that’s what that’s all about!
Our family is really fortunate to live close to Bobby Clow’s Store located in Hampshire.
I always say that everything you need, or need to know, you can find at Bobby’s.
That includes fresh local meat and produce.
So we picked up some new potatoes and I tried making Jamie Oliver’s Baked new potatoes with sea salt & rosemary. They were delicious! Instead of rolling them in the salt, ground pepper and rosemary, I added the ingredients to the pot after draining the potatoes, put the lid on and shook the pot. That’s why my potatoes look smashed.
I’ve never been much of a cook, but since we started PEI Foodies I am trying it and really loving it.
