Crushed New Potatoes

Serves 4

600g new potatoes
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp creme fraiche
salt and pepper

Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the potatoes. Boil until tender.
Drain and crush with the back of a fork.
Stir in the butter and creme fraiche and season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

I'm a giant wuss with overactive tastebuds so I leave the pepper for crazy folk to add as I can tolerate precisely zero specks of it. I did though, use Maldon sea salt because I am in love with it and use every damn excuse to use it.
We kept the leftovers and the following day my sister mixed them in with a tablespoonful or two of mayonnaise and a small can of sweetcorn. Absolutely delicious!
