My mum's potato salad was the best I've ever had - just simple though. She never peeled the new potatoes, boiled them in well salted water, always used Hellman's mayo, snipped chives into the mix and served in a bowl that had been rubbed round with a garlic clove.
I'll give that a whirl. Any pepper in the salad? Any particular potatoes? I've got some Charlotte potatoes fresh from the allotment today so I do plan to make a potato salad later this week to go with a quiche.
Always Jersey Royals when they are available but no pepper.
We're going to a wedding next month where they are having a hog roast. Yum, yum.
That sounds absolutely scrummy Nellie but I just know that unless I had a bib tied around my neck I'd end up dropping some of it down the front of my nice outfit LOL
Love it!! I went to wedding a few years ago that was a for a couple into Viking reenactment and they had a hog roast for the evening. It was a bit like a cross between a wedding and a day out with Time Team. It was fun though and the hog roast was flipping deevine! Such a great idea.
The hog roast at the wedding will be provided by a very good local pub and restaurant. If you are lucky on a Monday and they've catered a party on a Sunday they use leftover pork, homemade stuffing and their gorgeous cinnamony apple squce as a jacket spud or baguette filling.
I know they serve hasselback potatoes and red cabbage coleslaw with their event food so I may need to take an apron DD.
A few years ago, on nights after the annual fete had been held, the remains of the hog roast was spotted by the person in charge and a party was sent forth to grudgingly retrieve it. In the kitchen it became apparent that the meagre remains had been left for the foxes, and it had to carted out again. There was grease everywhere!! LOL
