Peas and New Potatoes
Okay, not my usual prepper notes here. Sometimes we must think about the now instead of the future, and new potatoes and fresh peas are a seasonal treat that can be hard to come by any other time of year. A perfect accompaniment to all that flavorful smoked salmon we preserved last month!
- 15 new potatoes (about 1.5 pounds)
- 2 cups shelled fresh peas
- 1/2 c. sliced green onion
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1 Tablespoon flour (I use potato starch)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- white pepper to taste
- 1 cup milk
Scrub the potatoes and cut into large bites. Cook in boiling water about 10 minutes, until you can easily push a fork through one. Add the fresh peas and stir for about a minute. Drain. Melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and stir once or twice. Stir in flour, salt and pepper then cook until the mixture bubbles. Add milk all at once. Cook and stir until bubbly and slightly thickened, then add potatoes and peas. Serve hot with a flavorful meat or other main entree. Feeds 4 to 6.
