In the early weeks of May three ingredients from different parts of The British Isles come into season, Eels from Lough Neagh a large freshwater lake in Northern Ireland from which I use the boiled liquid in my Liquor. The very first pickings of English Parsley also used in my Liquor and roughly chopped and sprinkle on the legendary Jersey Royals from the Channel Island of Jersey. The Pie with Jersey Royals and Liquor the flavour cannot be beaten or replicated - Spring has Sprung!
The earliest potatoes, traditionally grown on sun-drenched south-facing coastal cotils (slopes), are lifted by hand – so delicate are their skins that they must be cosseted until they reach the shops. To minimise bruising, the harvester digs under the crop and lifts the potatoes up so they are cushioned by soil.
The Royals you will receive from me have been thoroughly washed and 90% of the skin carefully removed. I then pressure cook them whole, when done I cool them with iced water, dry them and to retain the unique slightly nutty sweet taste. I then vacuum pack them in 250g portions. When you receive microwave the vac-pack until it balloons, leave to rest then cut the whole Royal to the size you require. I don't recommenext to your template.
