Cooking new potatoes

450g new potatoes


  1. Wash the earth from the new potatoes
  2. Use an old tooth or nailbrush to scrub the potatoes clean
  3. Cook in boiling water for 15-20 minutes until soft. Drain very well

A Grown up should do step 3

Serve the new potatoes warm with butter and chopped parsley or cold with garlic vinaigrette which you can make together.

Garlic vinaigrette



  1. Cut the lemon in half
  2. Twist the lemon halves around a citrus squeezer to get the juice out. Be careful if you have any cuts on your hands – lemon juice is stingy.
  3. Place the unpeeled garlic clove, flat onto a chopping board. Now take a cutlery knife with a wide blade and place it flat onto the clove. Press down strongly with the palm of your hand. Be careful not to touch the sharp part of the blade.
  4. You will now be able to move the skin easily from the crushed garlic clove.
  5. Chop the garlic into small pieces and push it into a pile. Place the knife flat again at one side of the chopped garlic. Press down on the knife with the palm of your hand. Move the knife a little further into the pile of chopped garlic and repeat. Keep doing this across the whole pile of garlic. Scrape up the crushed garlic and all of the garlic juices.
  6. Measure one tablespoon from the lemon juice and put it into a clean screw top jam jar.
  7. Add the olive oil and crushed garlic.
  8. Add a little freshly ground pepper
  9. Add the sugar to the jam jar
  10. Secure the lid and shake well.

Vinaigrette may need to grow on taste buds for little people but they can have fun making it.

A Grownup should do step 1 and assist with all other steps.
